The First of Two For Arizona?

Rod Odom is off the board. The 6-foot-8 perimeter player made his decision Wednesday and he's headed west to the Pac-10.

Arizona could be on the verge of a commitment windfall in the next 48 hours. On Wednesday, Concord (Mass.) Middlesex small forward Rod Odom committed to Sean Miller's Wildcat program.

The commitment is likely to be the first of two Miller receives this week. Phoenix native Daniel Bejarano makes his way to campus Wednesday evening for an official visit and is expected to commit.

The 6-foot-8 Odom, a native of New York, visited West Virginia, Vanderbilt, Harvard and Boston College.

"I think they feel that within their system he'll defend in the half court and still be able to get out and pressure the ball," coach Jamie Gallagher said. "He's able to do a lot of different things and it's going to be hard to guard him."

Miller had a chance to watch Odom as a younger player when he was at Xavier and the relationship continued in Tucson.

Odom averaged 15 points a game and, according to Gallagher, was in the Top 10 in every statistical category in his league. Odom was ranked the No. 22 small forward in the Class of 2010 and is Arizona's first commitment in the senior class.
