Odom is 6-6 240 pound tight end. He is a product of Jesuit High school in Tampa, Florida,. Alabama tight end coach Jeff Banks called Odom to informed of his offer, which left him with a loss for words.
“It feels great,” Odom said. “I did not really have words yesterday when I got it. I am extremely blessed.”
Alabama has only gotten Odom on campus once before and it was two years ago when he was a freshman. He attended a Nick Saban Football Camp. The Crimson Tide worked to quickly change that as they have set up a visit for Odom on March 23.
Although he has not stepped on the University of Alabama’s campus for two years, he has paid attention to the Tide’s success and how Nick Saban has continued to keep Alabama at the top of the college football world.
“It is amazing that a coach can be so successful for so long,” Odom said. “Very few can.”
Odom is a receiving tight end in every way. He has no problems with lining out wide and matching up with defensive backs. With Alabama putting more emphasis on including the tight end in the passing game in the future, Odom could be a good fit with his size and ability to be a weapon in the passing game.
Caden Clark is currently the only 2020 tight end committed to the Tide and it is clear Alabama wants more than one in this class after landing one in the 2019 recruiting class.
