3-star DB out of Florida re-commits to Iowa
After rethinking his options, three-star Florida defensive back Jordan Oladokun has decided to re-commit to Iowa. The Tampa native made his decision and announcement on Sunday.
“First I want to thank God for putting me in this position,” Oladokun wrote on Twitter. “I want to thank my mom and dad for helping and raising me from Day 1. I want to thank my brother and my sister for being there for me for whatever. I want to personally thank Academy at the Lakes and Gaither High School for making me the student athlete I am today! …With that being said I will be committing to the University of Iowa.”

Oladukon initially committed in Iowa in April but decided to decommit and reopen his recruitment a month later. He received additional offers from Washington State, Appalachian State, Florida Atlantic, Kansas State and West Virginia, however he settled on Iowa again.
Oladokun is a versatile two-way player who has played the defensive back and wide receiver positions at the high school level. He is ranked as the No. 78 cornerback in the 2021 recruiting class and is No. 125 out of the state of Florida.
Last season at the high school level, Oladokun totaled 28 catches for 532 yards and six touchdowns as a wide receiver. As a defensive back, he was credited with 20 tackles, five pass break-ups, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Per 247Sports, Oladokun received offers from two dozen programs. Now that he’s re-committed to the Hawkeyes, the team ranks 11th nationally and third in the B1G. Iowa has 17 members in its 2021 class.
