Standout Florida DT to Visit Florida

<b>Reggie Odom</b> is one of the best defensive tackle prospects in the state of Florida and he already holds three very nice offers. He will visit Gainesville this weekend, and he names a Top 3.

"I have offers from Louisville, Illinois and Maryland. I'd have to say right now though, that Florida or Florida State is sending me the most stuff," Reggie Odom said.

Which schools comprise his early list?

"I like everybody really. Being a Floridian, I like all the Florida schools. They're probably my top three schools, but I'm open to all offers."

What stands out about those three in-state powerhouses?

Florida: "I like the whole presence of the Swamp."

Florida State: "The whole atmosphere and Bobby Bowden. I just like them."

Miami: "Last year they gave me a bunch of invitations to their home games and they send me a bunch of stuff."

What is he seeking in the school of his choice?

"I'm looking for a good background of education and a place I can get noticed by the NFL scouts. I'm also just looking for another family really. I'd like to major in either law or business."

Odom has two unofficial visit destinations picked out for the next couple of weeks.

"I'm going to the Florida junior day this weekend and I think I'll be at Miami's 1 or 2 weeks after that."

Will he carry out his recruitment or potentially end things early?

"I'm going to probably take all my visits and explore around. See what it's like and all that."

Scott Kennedy Scout Report: Reggie Odom is a compact, quick, and strong defensive tackle that is equally adept at stuffing the run as he is at getting penetration on pass plays. He wreaks havoc on the offensive backfield and commands a double team on every play.
