ST. PAUL-- Nate from Northstar Football News got to chat with Simley running back Hope Adebayo about his commitment to the Tommies earlier this week. We chatted with Adebayo on what went into his decision, other contenders in his college football search, and much more.

What Sold Adebayo on the Tommies

"Going to St. Thomas is going to grow me into the man I want to be," Adebayo told Northstar Football News about his journey next season and beyond to the Tommies.

Other Contenders

The other suitors that were showing interest in Adebayo were the Bulldogs from Minnesota-Duluth and the Johnnies from St. Johns.
