Isles, Olatoye Make Practice Squads
GREENSBORO – Two North Carolina A&T Aggies from the 2013 football team made NFL practice squads, which were announced by the respective teams on Tuesday.
Former Aggies right tackle Nathan Isles is member of the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks practice squad, while former Aggies cornerback Ayodeji Olatoye made the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. Both men signed as undrafted free agents.
Isles (6-5, 324, Atlanta, Ga.) came to North Carolina A&T to play defensive line. By his sophomore season he was a fixture on the Aggies offensive line at right tackle. He helped Mike Mayhew lead the conference in rushing in 2011 and assisted Tarik Cohen in doing the same in 2013. Isles played more than 1,500 snaps, started 31 games (two as a defensive tackle) and made 42 appearances.
Olatoye (6-1, 198, Dublin, Ohio) transferred to A&T from the University of Colorado. He started all 21 games he appeared in as an Aggie over two seasons. In his Aggies career, he recorded 78 tackles, picked off five passes and broke up 13 more. Olatoye always intrigued scouts with his size and length.
