One of Pitt’s remaining 2020 targets is ready to make his college decision.
Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that Class of 2020 three-star guard Femi Odukale (Springfield, Massachusetts) plans on making his college decision early this week, most likely on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Odukale planned on making his fifth official visit but due to college visits being restricted for the forseeable future, he will now skip that final visit. PSN is told that Odukale will decide between Pitt, UMass and Seton Hall.
As far as those three finalist, a source tells me that Odukale was impressed with the way that UMass head coach Matt McCall developed and used freshman star Tre Mitchell, the A-10 Rookie of the Year. As far as Seton Hall, the same goes with Kevin Willard and star senior guard Myles Powell. In terms of Pitt, Odukale enjoyed his official visit and Jeff Capel and his ability to recruit and develop future NBA players.
Some recruiting insiders believe that UMass is the favorite so we’ll find out this week.
Regardless of what happens, it looks as though Capel will be looking to add a couple more guards this recruiting class, especially with the departure of Ryan Murphy.
