The Ontario defensive standout was also considering NCAA Division 2 team Simon Fraser Clan as well as a number of CIS teams including Western, Carleton and Wilfrid Laurier.

Back in December in an interview with CFC, the #CFC100 offered that the recruitment process was going well but he will be faced with a tough decision when it comes time to make one.

“Recruiting has been every good; it’s great having coaches realize my hard work is paying off and wanting me to attend and contribute to their programs,” expressed the defensive back. “The exciting part is building relationships with coaches who are very knowledgeable about the game and for me, I just soak up the information and try and put it towards my game.”

“The challenging part is letting coaches know that I won’t be attending their schools and it’s awful especially when you have good relationships with that coach or coaching staff.”

This fall, Addae will be attending Peddie School, a New Jersey prep school where he will suit up for the Falcons.

In June, the defensive standout was ranked on the #CFC100 CLASS 2016 RANKINGS.

Addae began his gridiron journey in grade nine.  Among the teams he has suited up for include Ajax-Pickering Dolphins of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) and his high school team, St. Mary Monarchs of the Lake Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association (LOSSAA).

During his time with the Monarchs, the #CFC100 guided the team to an OFSAA Bowl win.

Throughout his career, the defensive back has been recognized for his play with several honours including two consecutive OVFL All Star selections (2013, 2014), Monarchs Defensive MVP and LOSSAA Championship MVP.
