Notre Dame defensive lineman Justin Ademilola declares for NFL draft

One of the unsung heroes of Notre Dame’s defense the past few years has been lineman Justin Ademilola.

More attention has gone to twin brother jayson ademilola. Still, he is just as fierce a defender

, and he’s ready to test his abilities at the next level. Just as Jayson did Wednesday,

 Justin is declaring for the NFL draft, an announcement he made on social media:

In five seasons with the Irish, Justin recorded 108 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks.

He also recovered three fumbles, forced another one and deflected one pass.

He reached his career high of six tackles twice this past season,

 ironically in the Irish’s two home losses to Marshall and Stanford.

Best of luck to both Justin and Jayson as they prepare themselves for the professional game.

Irish fans should be grateful that they both stayed with the program for as long as they could

. That’s something that never can be repaid.
