He is a 6-3, 265-pounder with exceptional quickness and the versatility to play end, but he will likely move inside and play defensive tackle on the collegiate level.
As a junior Odum earned first team All-District and made a name for himself harassing quarterbacks and opposing offenses for 65 tackles, 5 sacks and 27 quarterback hurries.
"I always know where the ball is," Odum told Tiger Rag. "I've been playing for a long time so I have real good awareness. I also have real good technique and I move pretty good for a guy my size."
Odum is getting interest from schools all over the country including Virginia Tech, Southern Miss, Auburn, Georgia, Baylor, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, Duke, North Carolina and South Carolina.
He is waiting on that first offer and just trying to absorb as much information as possible before he starts narrowing his focus to a certain group of schools.
"I'm really open," Odum said. "I don't really have any preferences right now but I'm basing my decision on academics, athletics and tradition."
One school that has surprisingly not been in much contact with Odum is LSU but expect that to change when the Tiger coaching staff travels to Mandeville during the spring evaluation period to check on LSU commitment and teammate Steven Korte.
