Hakeem Adeniji brings versatility
Hakeem Adeniji earned All-Big 12 First Team honors in 2019; was a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award; and was named to the Outland Trophy Watch List.
He’s extremely intelligent, that’s one of the things we loved about him.
He was accepted into the Air Force Academy. The kid loves football. His intelligence is one of the things that stands out.
He can create some movement in the run game.
He can really bend and he’s a real natural athlete. You see him climb up to the second level at times and show off that athleticism.
We couldn’t be happier for Hakeem.
He’s a great young man who was a leader on and off the field for our program. I look forward to watching his NFL career progress with the Bengals. He will provide some positional flexibility and can play multiple positions along the offensive line and has what it takes to play in the National Football League for a long time.
