June has treated Adetokunbo Ogundeji well.

After withdrawing his verbal commitment from Western Michigan in May, the 2016 defensive end recruit has seen his stock rise. Oregon, Rutgers and California offered Ogundeji in the past two weeks. Notre Dame added itself to the fray Thursday.

Ogundeji, who competed in last weekend's lineman camp at Notre Dame, confirmed receiving an Irish offer from defensive line coach Keith Gilmore. Now the 6-foot-5, 225-pound prospect will return to Notre Dame on Saturday.

As a junior at Walled Lake (Mich.) Central, Ogundeji played both defensive end and tight end, but his college future is on defense. 247Sports slates Ogundeji as a three-star recruit and the No. 39 weakside defensive end. Rivals has not given him a rating.

In the same week four-star recruit Khalid Kareem of Farmington (Mich.) Harrison committed to Alabama over Michigan and Notre Dame, the Irish have decided to look north again for another defensive end option.
