Tampa FL, (JR) TE Jonathan Odom 6'6" 240 (Jesuit High School Tampa,Fl) has been a very busy guy, coming fresh off his visit from Iowa University this past week, before he could even have a chance to let it digest he'd snag an Offer from the Crimson Tide Tuesday evening That offer really had him stoked and it came by surprise.He has a lengthy list of offers already(30).
The 3 star TE does have a little more time though, before he looks to narrow down his top choices of schools, he hopes to have a top 10 leading into the spring and then by the summer will try and cut that to the 5, in which all schools are waiting to see, if their on that list. I asked Jonathan why such a spike in offers all of a sudden?
" I believe coaches like my versatility in the run & pass game, also my ability to get open and get the jump ball makes me a threat".
I was intrigued by Odom because he spoke wise beyond his years. He's not caught up in all the hype, he's just a hard worker who wants to let his play do all the talking! Odom will once again get an opportunity to prove he's one of the best TE's in the country this Sunday at the Adidas 3 stripes camp.
He is one of the areas best for sure and looks to get better as the season goes into the fall. When I asked what would go into his decision when making a choice he stated.
" You know things like family, friends and my coaches will be a big part also the playing time and academics will be key, and, distance is not a factor".
He has several visits set up so it'll be fun to see where he lands. Odom is definitely a next level prospect that will make noise on the big stage.
Insider Take: Jonathan Odom is a prospect with a huge catch radius,with his wide wing span. He takes pride in blocking and plays with a mean streak. I can definitely see him playing in the #SEC or a BCS type school. Film doesn't lie and his film speaks volume on who he is as a player!
