IOWA CITY, Iowa – For the second time, three-star defensive back Jordan Oladokun is no longer verbally committed to the Iowa football team’s 2021 recruiting class.
The Tampa, Fla., native announced his de-commitment Monday on Twitter less than 24 hours after reports in the Des Moines Register and the Daily Iowan said eight Black former players are demanding $20 million the removal of head coach Kirk Ferentz, offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz, and Athletics Director Gary Barta, claiming they were subjected to intentional race discrimination by the coaching staff and administration during their time as Hawkeyes.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Oladokun previously was verbally committed to Iowa from April 14 to May 8 but decided to reopen his recruitment., and then committed to Iowa again Jun. 21.
Oladokun was the only Black player to verbally commit to Iowa after former players made accusations of racial inequity within the program, most of which centered around former strength and conditioning coordinator Chris Doyle, who reached a separation agreement with Iowa on Jun. 15.
