Jayson Ademilola has yet to be picked up by one of the major All-America games, but the Notre Dame commit now has one all-star game on his itinerary.

The 6-foot-3, 290-pound defensive tackle has been invited to play in the 2018 Polynesian Bowl next January at Aloha Stadium in Aiea, Hawaii.

The game will include 90 nationally ranked players, with roughly 75 percent of the roster consisting of players of Polynesian ancestry.

Notre Dame freshman defensive lineman Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa played in the inaugural Polynesian Bowl earlier this year. Former Irish offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley served as a team captain in the first game and will return next year as an ambassador.

Notre Dame running back commit Markese Stepp has also been selected to play in the 2018 Polynesian Bowl. Several Irish recruiting targets, including local Penn safety Paul Moala, are also slated to participate in the game. | 574-235-6214 | Twitter: @TJamesNDI
