Damn! Meant to make a thread on him earlier today. My only reservation on him is he didn't get to play all year because of a visa issue. That's cleared up but I still hate that he lost a full year of football.

He's committing on his birthday BTW. December 12th.

Kayode Oladele changes decision timeline

For a while, Kayode Oladele has been trending to Auburn.

After he visited for the Iron Bowl, Oladele sounded like he could be the next to commit. He’d set up a commitment date — Dec. 12, which is his birthday. It was set up two days after his Auburn official visit, which he still plans to take this upcoming weekend.

But there’s been a slight change in plans.

Oladele won’t make that decision a week from Tuesday, as originally planned. With Florida State — another key school involved — undergoing a coaching change, he wants to be patient so he can hear what the new Seminoles coach has to say.

Even with the delayed decision, the Tigers are still in a great spot.

“They told me I have opportunity if I come here. They want to work with me and develop me to get to where I want to get to in life,” Oladele said. “I would say [Auburn’s] top 2.”

Oladele’s most recent visit came for the Auburn-Alabama game.

Originally, he wanted that to be his official visit. Instead, because of Rodney Garner’s game-day availability, Oladele opted to wait until after the season to take that Auburn official visit. He still expects to take that this weekend. In fact, he’s finalizing the details of that trip later Tuesday.

One factor that will help Auburn: Richard Jibunor.

Both are Nigeria natives, and they spent a lot of time together over Iron Bowl weekend. Oladele admitted he heard from Jibunor on multiple occassions that he should just go ahead and commit to the Tigers to end the process. That’s still what most people expect to happen, but the wait might drag on a week or two longer than previously scheduled.

“He’s committed. He was telling me to come here. We should team up. He was telling me all the coaches are really good to him, which is actually what made him make the decision of coming [to Auburn],” Oladele said. “He’s recruiting me so hard and telling me to come here and become a family.”

Oladele hopes to sign and enroll early after making his upcoming decision.

lol what?! surely a official visit to ole miss is not what made him push this back. I hope we can lock him up and get him to go back to the original timeline on his OV this weekend.

Something changed. He has been all Auburn for so long. I just took for granted he would be a part of this class. He did not need to see who the new FSU coach was before. This is something new and a development. The only thing that has happened is him going on a OV to Ole Miss. If he still keeps the scheduled OV to Auburn for this weekend and it goes well and we knock it out of the park I still think he could commit to us at his originally scheduled time. LETS LOCK HIM DOWN BABY!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! WAR DAMN!!!

LOL. FSU didn't have a coaching change before. FSU has always been a factor if they wanted to be. He was previously committed to them remember.

why would he be more likely to commit to fsu a place he was previously committed to when most if not all of the staff he committed to will not be there? I could see your point if jimbo was still there. It is not like he is some lifelong noles fan or something. He has only been in the states a few years.

Maybe he really likes the school & it may have been Jimbo's choice for him to decommit & not Kayode's. Not the norm but that happens sometimes. He may have really gotten to like FSU a lot in his short time in the states.

He could also be using the FSU situation as an excuse to see what Steele is going to do.

has steele been involved heavily in his recruitment? I know he has for some kids. But I genuinely do not know about this recruitment. He was the reason we got smoke monday I remember that.

That I don't know, but I got to believe that a new DC could cause some D kids to rethink things

He's a factor in all our D recruits. He's a good recruiter in his own right & with T-Will often at the forefront CKS is a very good supporting actor. Plus if CKS took another job our D philosophy & type of personnel needs could change quite a bit.

In days of old, I would have totally thought this was a negative sign. With this staff however, I’m more prone to believe AU must feel super strong about some players higher on the board. I bet Mr. Garner is going to deliver some more of his late recruiting surprises. WDE
