On Sunday, guard Femi Odukale committed to Seton Hall after playing two seasons with the Pitt Panthers.
Odukale entered the transfer portal after the conclusion of this season. As a sophomore, the 6-foot-5 guard averaged 10.8 points, 3.4 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game for the Panthers. He shot 41% from the field and 33% from three-point range across his two college seasons. Odukale has three years of eligibility remaining for the Pirates and new head coach Shaheen Holloway. With the addition of Odukale, Holloway adds a long guard with a bulldog mentality who has shown flashes of crafty driving ability and solid outside shooting at the high-major level. While he is not a catch-and-shoot, quick-release shooter, Odukale has proven that he can hit the open three and catch fire from deep. He struggled with turnovers in his time at Pitt, but now has a chance for a fresh start at Seton Hall closer to home.
In his career at Pitt, Odukale averaged 8.2 points, 3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game. The native of Brooklyn, New York exploded for 28 points this season against Jacksonville, hitting five threes.
Odukale was a three-star recruit in the class of 2020 coming out of a prep year in Massachusetts. He chose Pitt over Seton Hall, Virginia Tech, and others, but now takes his talents to the Pirates two years later.
