Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Sixth-year who has started 27 of 42 career games for a 25-17 career record, including all 15 starts in 2021 at 11-4. Three-star HS recruit at USF who redshirted in 2016, playing sparingly the next two years. Transferred to Samford, started one season but was benched after the opener in 2020 for Liam Welch. Transferred to South Dakota State and started all 15 games in 2021. Under HC John Stiegelmeier (25th season), OC Jason Eck (third season), and QBs Coach Zach Lujan (fourth season), Chris Oladokun leads a run-heavy offense that offers heavy doses of RPO and misdirection. In Pass, movement-based scheme that emphasizes bootlegs, Screens, and underneath concepts with the occasional deep shot. Backup QB you can win despite. Agile passer who can sling it across the field despite rarely throwing from a set base, evoking Mahomes with mechanical and pocket tendencies. Evaporates from oncoming pass rushers. Shows the foot speed to at least threaten the run. Smaller build and is heavily impacted by pressure, vacating clean pockets and changing throwing motion entirely to avoid contact. Benefitted from a strong run game and a high dose of simplified reads, struggling when caught in long-distance situations.
