Hawkeyes lose Tampa DB from 2021 recruiting class
A member of Iowa’s 2021 class has decided to decommit.
On Monday morning, three-star defensive back Jordan Oladokun announced his decision to decommit from the Iowa football program. It’s the second time he’s decommitted from the Hawkeyes’ 2021 class. The Tampa, Florida native released a statement on social media.
“This is one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my 18 years of living,” Oladokun wrote. “Right now, we’re going through one of the hardest things in this world and that’s racism. I feel like I wouldn’t be doing my part if [I] stood around and stayed pretending like these issues are not occurring. I will be decommitting from Iowa and opening my recruitment up to ALL schools. I can’t thank Iowa enough for taking a chance on me!”
