Biography

Adeniji (pronounced uh-DEN-UH-gee) was an all-district player as a junior and senior at Garland High School in Texas. He played both offensive tackle and defensive end at Garland but eventually became an O-lineman full-time after suffering a turf toe injury. Kansas was smart to sign him for the front five, as he started all 12 games as a true freshman, six at left tackle and six at right tackle. Adeniji earned honorable mention All-Big 12 notice that year, as well as after his sophomore season, when he again started all 12 games (11 at left tackle, one at right tackle). In 2017 league coaches voted him second-team all-conference for his play in 12 starts at left tackle. He was an honorable mention pick after 12 starts at left tackle in 2019, while also earning a captain's letter.
