3-star defensive end Kayode Oladele ranked 473rd nationally, 17th at his position, and 74th within Florida, has de-committed from Florida State citing that he committed too early and needed to take more time with the recruiting process. He previously visited FSU when he participated in the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp last summer and committed to FSU following a Junior Day visit earlier this year. At 6’4 235 lbs the 3-star prospect has impressive physical tools but also is very raw and is one of those very low floor, very high ceiling type of recruits. He was previously thought to be a Miami lean and his crystal ball predictions reflect that as four Miami crystal ball predictions have come in following his departure from #Tribe18.
Oladele maintains that FSU is still one of his top schools but re_commitments are rare & I wouldn’t expect him to rejoin this class any time soon. This is a familiar cycle for those that follow FSU recruiting annually in which there appears to be a lull in FSU’s recruiting and with its second de-commitment in as many weeks (Isaiah Bolden) FSU might be in a bit of a soft class reset before the Summer Evaluation period begins.
FSU’s class now has two defensive end commits and is ranked 7th nationally with one 5-star committed, 4 4-stars, and 3 3-star recruits.
