Landing defensive players from Florida is something the Pitt staff has done successfully over the last handful of years and they’re hoping to enjoy more success in this recruiting cycle.
The Panthers plan on adding a few more defensive backs to their Class of 2021 and two of their targets happen to be from the same part of Florida.
3-star cornerback Jordan Oladokun (Gaither High School in Tampa, Florida) and 3-star cornerback Noah Biglow (Armwood High School in Seffner, Florida) are both on Pitt’s radar and the Panthers coaches appear to be recruit them as a package deal.
Oladokun tweeted out a graphic that he received from the Panthers recruiting department showing him and Biglow together in Pitt uniforms.
Oladokun recently became available after de-committing last week from Iowa. When announcing the news, Oladokun stated that he made the decision to commit too soon and wanted to open things up and give the recruiting process some more time.
The 3-star defensive back holds over 30 offers including ones from Penn State, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Louisville, Iowa State, Georgia Tech, Washington State, North Carolina, Texas Tech, Virginia and West Virginia.
Biglow also decided on a college in April as he’s currently committed to Iowa State but that didn’t stop Rob Harley and Pitt from offering him last week.
Pittsburgh Sports Now talked to him after getting the news from Pitt and Biglow told me “I’m talking to Coach Harley, it took a little time (to get that offer from Pitt). They reevaluated my film and they liked it a lot so we were just waiting on the OK from Coach Narduzzi (to officially receive the offer).”
Biglow admits that he doesn’t know much about the Pitt program but the interesting part is that he will be learning about it when he takes a virtual visit of the school and football program with the coaching staff.
“Yes, I am 100% committed to Iowa State. Anybody can hit my line though, I’m not turning anybody down. To me, it’s never a bad thing to get an offer (from another program), it’s just more of a blessing,” said Biglow.
Biglow told PSN that he plans on doing an upcoming virtual visit of Pitt with members of the coaching staff.
Oladokun’s recruitment is wide open, the questions now are will Biglow stay committed to Iowa State and if he doesn’t, will Pitt be able to land this duo from the Sunshine State?
