Reporters and media personalities filed into Dignity Health Sports Park on Wednesday in Carson, Calif.
The University of Alabama football team practiced in front of viewing cameras, preparing for its matchup with top-ranked Michigan in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day. Nick Saban has his players locked in on the task while the team is enjoying the festivities ahead of the game. According to reliable sources close to Touchdown Alabama Magazine, one of the Crimson Tide’s freshman signees in the 2024 class is turning heads at practice. Caleb Odom, a four-star tight end, is giving teammates a taste of what they can expect from him next spring and fall. Odom, a product of Carrollton (Ga.) High School, is putting people on notice.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder had an impressive high school career. He has natural ball skills, athleticism, and route running as a tight end, collecting 1,121 yards and 13 touchdowns on 64 catches as a junior. Odom also played basketball at Carrollton.
Per sources, Odom put on a show in Wednesday’s practice for reporters. People could not stop watching him make plays in the passing game. It will be fun to watch his development into spring practice, summer workouts, and fall camp before next season.
He has the potential to be another marquee playmaker.
