The 6-foot-3, 250-pound, prospect had been verbally committed to Mississippi State, but recently reopened his recruitment after defensive coordinator Peter Sirmon left Starkville to come to Louisville.
Odom holds scholarship offers from Florida State, Indiana, Memphis, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Missouri and Southern Miss. In his senior season, Odom had 18 sacks and 28 tackles for a loss.
