Adetokunbo Ogundeji's path to full health is complete.

The Notre Dame defensive end commit was recently cleared to resume football activities after more than three months of physical therapy.

Ogundeji, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior at Walled Lake (Mich.) Central, had his final season cut short with a partially torn MCL in his right knee. He played in just four games.

Ogundeji said his knee did not require surgery. Instead, Ogundeji participated in physical therapy four times a week.

The three-star recruit is expecting an in-home visit from defensive line coach Keith Gilmore on Thursday.

247Sports slates Ogundeji as the No. 39 weakside defensive end in the 2016 class. Rivals ranks him as the No. 32 senior in Michigan.
