Former Pitt Transfer Guard Femi Odukale Receiving Plenty of Early Interest

Published

on

Since making the decision to transfer from Pitt, Femi Odukale has received plenty of early interest from a variety of D-1 programs.

The 6-foot-5 guard tells Adam Zagoria that since entering the Transfer Portal, the following programs have reached out to him: Missouri, Iona, Ohio, Georgia Tech, Rhode Island, VCU, California, South Carolina, Washington State, New Mexico State and Seton Hall.

After playing in 53 games on the last two seasons with Pitt, Odukale made the decision to take his talents to another division one program. In his career at Pitt, Odukale averaged 8.2 points, 3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game.

The native of Brooklyn, New York showed flashes of being a consistent, productive player but also showed too much inconsistency that a winning team can’t afford to get from the point guard position. His top two games this past season were against Jacksonville (28 points, 5 3-pointers) and Virginia Tech (25 points, 5 3-pointers).

Odukale was a 3-star recruit in Pitt’s Class of 2020 and signed with Pitt over other offers from Seton Hall, Virginia Tech, Washington State, UMass, St. Bonaventure, New Mexico, Manhattan, Niagara, and Stony Brook.

Pitt started the process of filling up the void left from Odukale’s departure by receiving a commitment from Colgate transfer guard Nelly Cummings.

I wish he would have stayed.
I think he will be a very good player if he can play alongside a good point guard.

I think it was clear from the start that he was not a point guard but with that said; why didn’t Capel and company change him to a 2 guard and work on his jump shot over the past two years? His failure at Pitt is not his failure alone. Not all players are not being developed at Pitt and it shows in the results.

Good luck to you Femi
