Micah Awodiran, a linebacker for Marist (Chicago) who is ranked as the No. 10 recruit in Illinois by 247Sports.com, has committed to Yale, he told the website.
Awodiran, who had 26 reported offers, selected the Ivy League school over Duke, Vanderbilt and Illinois.
Ranked as the No. 27 outside linebacker in the nation, he said he felt Yale was the right place after two visits to the New Haven, Conn., campus.
“Just overall what they have academically and athletically what they can do there it felt like the best place I can be successful for the next four years,” Awodiran told 247Sports. “Definitely just the comfort level there overall being around the coaches and players. That comfort level that I found there are the main aspects that led to the decision.”
