In just two career games with Texas A&M, former top-100 recruit Tunmise Adeleye put up six total tackles and 0.5 tackles for loss. Those aren’t earth-shattering numbers, by any means, but he was clearly a productive defensive lineman in a short period of time. He’s going to put up serious numbers on the Michigan State defensive line this year.
Although he came to Michigan State in the hopes of playing for Marco Coleman and Brandon Jordan, he stuck it out even after both of those guys took other jobs.
I think that decision is going to pay off big time.
Adeleye is projected to start along the defensive line along with Khris Bogle, Simeon Barrow, and Derrick Harmon. Other guys who could push for snaps are Avery Dunn, Dre Butler, Ken Talley, Zion Young, Andrew Depaepe, and Bai Jobe, among others. He’s going to be pushed by plenty of talented players but he’s used to that kind of pressure.
The Texas A&M transfer could be one of the best newcomers in the Big Ten this season, proving just why he was so coveted by major programs coming out of high school and in the portal.
