Introducing The New Cowboys: Baron Odom

Baron Odom switched from Rice to Oklahoma State earlier this week after receiving an offer from the Cowboys.

Baron Odom
6-4, 230
Wynnewood, Okla.

Briefly: One prospect’s decision can become another prospect’s opportunity and that is what happened for Odom, who is a talented two-way player for Wynnewood that came to Oklahoma State numerous times for camps and unofficial visits and games. Because of all that exposure the coaching staff knew him well. When a scholarship opened late for the Cowboy back position he was the player that the staff targeted. He is big, athletic, and will fill out and develop well in the weight room with Rob Glass and his staff.

Other Offers: Air Force, Army, Central Arkansas, Rice, Stephen F. Austin, Tennessee-Martin, and Wyoming.

High School: He earned third-team All-State honors from The Oklahoman, honorable mention All-State from The Tulsa World, and was named to the Mr. Football Award – Vype Top 100 as a blue-chip selection. Odom really split his attention on the field down the middle as a senior for Wynnewood as he had 15 receptions for 396 yards and seven touchdowns on offense and on defense he had 53 total tackles, 28 unassisted, six sacks, seven tackles for loss, an interception, a fumble caused, and a blocked kick. As a junior, he had 20 receptions for 407 yards with five touchdowns receiving and one rushing touchdown. As a sophomore, he had 19 catches for 388 yards and five touchdowns.

Personal: Born on March 5, 1998. Son of Tammy and Brad Odom.
