NCAA Early Signing Period: Rhode Island is the place to be as Adeboboye signs with Bryant University

CFC100 RB Daniel Adeboboye (The Hill School, PA – Toronto ON)
Daniel Adeboboye slowly worked his way into the CFC100 top ten rankings this season, and his hard work has paid off with him officially signing his letter of intent to play at Bryant University during the first day of the NCAA early signing period.

Adeboboye originally hails from Toronto, Ontario where he grew up playing for the Scarborough Thunder and the CFC50 Northern Red Knights, but he opted to finish his high school career at the Hill School in Pennsylvania where he could hopefully get some more exposure. By the end of his recruiting trail he had taken unofficial visits to schools like UConn, UMass and almost all the Ivy League schools, then of course top U Sports programs like Western, Guelph and McMaster were interested in his services, but it was Bryant University located in Rhode Island that was able to win him over against the stiff competition. At 5’10”, 215lbs with a 4.5 40 yard time, Adeboboye is as legit as they come in the backfield, and has proven over time he doesn’t care what side of the scoreboard he’s on or where he’s playing, all he’s going to do is play football at the highest level possible which must have been endearing to Bryant who struggles for exposure themselves as one of the newer FCS programs.

Bryant has an interesting story with their first football game played back in 1999 as a Division II school, which is a stark contrast to many programs you hear of who likely played their first game closer to 1899. Regardless of age though, they’ve been able to find consistent success in their young history which resulted in them becoming full members of the FCS Northeast Conference in 2012, and since then they’ve compiled a 32-34 record including an 8-3 run back in 2014. They’ve also seemed to have taken a liking to Canadians with them offering CFC100 Sammy Obiang and CFC100 Xavier Thibault as well this season.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
