Indiana Football: Hoosiers offer 3-star DB from Tennessee

The Indiana football team is continuing to look to add to their 2021 class as they offered Jawon Odoms, a 3-star defensive back, on Monday.

The Hoosiers have been riding high with their recruiting and continue to look to Tennesse for prospects.  Indiana and Tom Allen have recruited Florida very well, but they have recently been catching the eye of some players from the Volunteer state.

On Monday that continued when they extended a scholarship offer to Jawon Odoms, a defensive back from Henry County, Tennessee. Odoms shared on his Twitter page the news of the offer.

Odoms is rated as the 22nd rated player in Tennessee and the 61st defensive back in the country according to 247sports. He has offers from in-state schools Tennessee, Austin Peay, and Memphis. He has also received offers from Arkansas State and Western Carolina.

He is a great athlete who has great covering skills but will also come up and defend the run. Odoms is a player who won’t shy away from the big hit and also has the speed to stick with the best receivers.

It could be tough to pull him away from the in-state schools, but Allen hasn’t shied away from going after kids in different states and it continues with this offer. Indiana is making a splash in the recruiting trail and high schoolers are taking notice.
