WVU Basketball extended an offer to 2027 five-star prospect Baba Oladotun on Friday. Oladotun is a 6-foot-8 forward from Maryland.

“Blessed to receive an offer from West Virginia,” he wrote on social media.

West Virginia wasn’t the only school to offer Oladotun on Friday as Tennessee, UCLA and USC all chimed in with the rising sophomore. Oladotun has received previous offers from Bryant, Louisville, Virginia Tech and others with interest from DePaul and Maryland.

Oladotun currently plays at James Hubert Blake High School after transferring from DeMatha Catholic High School.

West Virginia’s staff recently offered 2025 four-star forward Shon Abaev. Saturday marks the first day that college basketball staffs can directly contact the rising juniors in the class of 2026.
