Tide Will Get Visit

This weekend's Alabama-Florida game is attracting a lot of attention, including from some of the Crimson Tide's top recruiting prospects.

Derrick Odom is a 4 Star linebacker prospect and a member of the South Hot 100. He knows four schools that he will likely visit once his season is over.

"I have offers from Ole Miss, Southern Miss, LSU, and Iowa State," said Odom. "Ole Miss was the first school to call me on September 1st. Coach Orgeron called me at 7:00 AM that morning. LSU, Southern Miss, Iowa State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Nebraska, and Alabama call me every week."

Odom hasn't taken in any college games yet, but he will be at the showcase game in the SEC this weekend.

"I'm going to Alabama/Florida this weekend; that will be my first game."

Odom lists four schools amongst his favorites right now.

"Alabama, Southern Miss, Ole Miss, and LSU are my favorites right now. Those are the schools that will definitely get visits. I plan on taking my visits once the season is over."

How is that season coming along?

"Right now we're 1-2. We beat Gentry on Friday 23-20. I had 15 tackles with three tackles for loss and one sack. I also caught a two point conversion at tight end. We play Greenwood this Friday night."
