The Tampa, Fla., native was previously verbally committed to Iowa from April 14 to May 8 but decided to reopen his recruitment.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Oladokun is the 17th player to commit to the class and chose Iowa over his other top schools Kansas State, Louisville and Pittsburgh.
Oladokun is the first Florida native and first defensive back in the class.
Oladokun committed to Iowa without ever having visited Iowa due to NCAA restrictions on in-person contact between coaches and recruits amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It was definitely a hard decision,” Oladkun told HawkFanatic.com in April. “I’ve been to other places I’ve been recruited by. It was just Iowa – what they build there. The development that goes on at Iowa is, in my opinion, I don’t need to be on a visit to see. That’s just kind of something everybody talked about. It’s not just one person talking about it. Everyone talked about it. People even down where I’m at in Tampa talk about it.”
