Iowa Freshman Josh Ogundele Can Return To Iowa City

NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Iowa Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

It has been a strange and bewildering time for everyone living through COVID-19 since March. That’s especially been the case for Iowa freshman center Josh Ogundele.

Ogundele, a native Englishman, found that he couldn’t travel back to the United States after a final trip to England on April 25th. His scheduled return trip to the United States to join all of the other Hawkeye freshmen was on June 8th. What’s followed has been a summer of confusion with Ogundele and his family trying to figure out when Ogundele could join his teammates in Iowa City.

Now, according to a report from 247Sports, Ogundele appears to be able to join the Hawkeyes in the coming weeks. Iowa’s been holding team workouts since June.

Ogundele committed to the Hawkeyes in November 2019. According to 247Sports, he is a composite three-star prospect. He chose Iowa over offers from Rutgers, Cincinnati, Rhode Island, and 13 other schools.
