Fifth-year senior tight-end Marcus Ademilola looks to join the professional ranks, signing with Mullins Talent Management agency, per his Twitter account.

Ademilola started his collegiate career with Bucknell in 2015, posting 11 receptions for 148 yards with a touchdown as a freshman.

He transitioned from wide receiver to tight end during his time at Bucknell.

Despite a down year in 2016, in 2017 as a junior, the Jackson, New Jersey native had 32 receptions, 233 yards, and two touchdowns, all career highs, leading the Bison in receptions at his position.

He arrived in Moon Township after sitting out all 2018 and 2019 due to injury.

In the spring-shortened 2021 season, he made an appearance at James Madison. In his final year of eligibility, he finally made his first and only reception as a Colonial with a 7-yard catch at Gardner-Webb.

Ademilola was a great asset in the offensive blocking game for Robert Morris and looks to continue that in the pros with the goal being the NFL.

Ademilola will begin preparing for the NFL Draft Combine with Test Football Academy.
