The Charleston Battery have completed the signing of twenty-two-year-old defender, Temi Adesodun. Adesodun joins the Battery following a four-year playing career at the College of Charleston.
Adesodun wasted no time in establishing himself as a key defender for the Cougars during his freshman year at The College. Temi started all seventeen matches in 2015 and was named to the CAA All-Rookie team. Adesodun played alongside current Battery defender Leland Archer and midfielder Nico Rittmeyer logging 1,457 minutes; good for the fourth-highest on the team.
Temi's junior season was highlighted by an assist against Florida Atlantic in a 1-0 win and played his usual allotment of minutes making eighteen appearances helping the Cougar defense to six shutouts on their way to an 8-6-4 record. He finished out his college career in 2018 serving as team captain and earning tournament honors at the UNCW Springhill Suites Classic.
Prior to his time at the College of Charleston Adesodun attended Irmo High School in Columbia, South Carolina where he earned varsity honors in all four years. The defender led Irmo to a 2013 4A state championship and two regional championships. Temi showcased his offensive talents scoring twelve goals and providing thirty assists for the Yellowjackets.
