2022 DB from Michigan decommits from Iowa, re-opens recruitment
Iowa’s 2022 recruiting class will have one less member than previously expected.
Wednesday, 3-star defensive back Olando Trader announced his decision to decommit from Iowa and re-open his recruitment. He was previously expected to arrive on campus this summer as the Hawkeyes prepare for the 2022 campaign.
“Iowa has always been a place that I called home. The coaches were amazing, the environment was live and the players were great to be around,” Trader wrote on Twitter. “After many conversations and decisions I have decided to open my recruitment up to find where I can be the most successful and better myself as a student athlete.
“I am decommitting from Iowa and my recruitment is 100% open at this time(.) Respect the decision!”
