CFC100 Offer Stories

Somebody needed to get the clock ticking in the AUS, and the St. Mary’s Huskies have grabbed the baton at full sprint sending their third offer to CFC100 Kojo Odoom. We’ve seen them go on a little streak before the Blackout Period offering CFC100s Jake Taylor and Steven Schwartz as well, so we’ll have to wait and see if their early efforts pay off when we come to the end of the recruiting trail. It’s a change up from their rivals in the AUS, which should count for something, and it’s a great way to target out of province recruits.

Odoom says ever since he got the first offer from Laurier, the process has picked up and he’s excited about what the Huskies staff can deliver,

“After that first offer from Laurier, I think that’s setting the precedent for more and more schools to offer sooner rather than later. Knowing the type of coach Colzie is, especially with all of his experience down south this latest offer is big time!”

Whenever you think you’re in the clear, always recheck your calculations. As the clock ticked down on the Blackout Period deadline, Odoom was able to get one more offer past the finish line from the Ottawa Gee-Gees. They’re another team who came alive on social media in the waning weeks of June with offers for CFC100s Steven Schwartz and Erik Andersen, but Odoom holds the distinction as their first prospect outside of Ontario to receive a public offer and also the first defensive player. Odoom’s other two offers come from UBC and Manitoba, plus he’s been active down south with visits to the Stanford,  Eastern Washington and Portland State junior days.

CFC Lead Analyst, Clint Uttley, says Odoom has been CFC’s radar for a long time, so this flurry of action isn’t a surprise to those who’ve seen him play,

“Odoom has been on our radar since his grade 9 year. He’s an outstanding athlete who has impressive size and length for the position. He’s demonstrated over the last few years that he has big play potential – so much so that very few people throw at him even as a sophomore or a junior. It will be interesting to see how he develops in his senior season as he has the potential to be one of the better corners in the class of 2019.”
