Oladokun visited the Steelers this week and previously visited the Chicago Bears, according to a league source. He has also worked out for the Arizona Cardinals and has a private workout Thursday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per a league source.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Tampa, Florida native led the Jackrabbits to an 11-4 record, including a victory over Colorado State and a win over North Dakota State. South Dakota State won three playoff games before losing to Montana State in the semifinals.

A transfer from South Florida and Samford, Oladokun passed for 2,064 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2019 and rushed for 493 yards and 8 scores. He tied a school record with 6 touchdown passes and 1 touchdown run in a 2018 game at Tennessee Tech.

He was selected to play in the Blue-Grey Football All-American Bowl as a prep senior at Tampa. As a senior, he passed for 1,390 yards, 15 TDs, and had 3 INTs. He had 57 career touchdown passes in high school.
