Former Wildcat George Asafo-Adjei received the call from the New York Giants during the seventh round of the NFL. The 6-foot-5 offensive tackle was selected as the 232nd overall pick.
When Giants’ head coach Pat Shurmur and Dave Gettleman gave Asafo-Adjei a ring, he was more than happy to answer the call. In fact, when they asked him if he’s ready to be a New York Giant, his answer was simple and immediate: Hell Yeah.

Big George was the fifth Wildcat to get a call from an NFL team this season, and he’s ready to get to work. After the news broke, he posted on Instagram, saying “Excited to be back in New York & go to work! God has blessed me so much and it’s only right that I take advantage of my opportunity!”
He’ll be joined by fellow Wildcat CJ Conrad inside MetLife Stadium.
