    This is very interesting. Xavier offers fast rising 2021 SF Jusaun Holt. Looks like he’s a teammate of Odom’s at St. Francis! That has to bode well for X in landing him. I mean, you know he looks up to Dwon and will no doubt influence his decision to some degree. Did a little digging on him and noticed that he was a very consistent scorer as a sophomore at St. F and saved his best for the State Championship game.

    He continued to impress in the spring/summer playing for the AAU 16U Atlanta Celtics, so again a strong connection to Odom. Maybe he will follow his lead and commit early as a junior.

    Thanks for the research. The future looks bright for X. I have high hopes for the Odom led class. It should be very special over the next 3-4 years.
    The Goodin/Scruggs/Marshall perimeter threat is still a big question mark BUT they showcased they can play lock-down defense. X will go as far as the defense and rebounding goes. Having top level talent doesn't hurt. Need 2-3 consistent 3 point threats!

    Are we already thread derailing to 2021? Xuperman just can't help himself.
    How many spots do we have left for 2021? Two for sure?

    If Carlson commits and Scruggs and Marshall declare, we'll have three. I think.

    There are a LOT of 2021 offers made already, according to 247. I bet the staff continues to lean towards more size even if we close on Carlson. It would be a great story if Mutombo's son actually ended up at Xavier. Sort of full circle for the program in the modern national stage.

    I say we chill on this analysis until at least mid season. It's too far away to how things could fall.

    I only posted this RELEVENT RECRUITING NEWS here because it's DWON ODOM related.

    He effectively ended the dunk contest after that last one!

    Does Odom remind anyone else of a PG Dez Wells or is it just me?

    It's exciting if he is a DW Clone, or reasonable facsimile thereof.

    I get the connection. I was never more excited about a recruit Xavier landed than I was about Dez Wells. He just looked like a athletic super hero with the ball in his hand- some one who (at least at that time) usually got scooped up by one of those top sevenish programs who can pretty much hand pick the players they want. I remember thinking, this kid is from Carolina. How the hell is he not going to Duke or UNC. He looked that dominant. that talented. that polished. That far superior to the players he was playing against - much like Odom now looks like in his videos. I’m pretty sure I literally drooled every time I watched Wells’ hi light reel, knowing he was coming to X.

    The only X recruit who came close to Dez (prior to last year) was Jalen Reynolds. Reynolds looked like a manly beast among boys. But now Odom not only has those qualities (albeit in a smaller frame) but he also looks much more polished and versatile than Jalen did (like Dez). Kyky might also be on my list of top 5 recruits X landed that I was most excited about just by watching his high school tapes.

    That’s not to say I wasn’t blown away by with both Tre and JP’s tapes where they were scoring machines. But no one come off like gifted athletic freaks with super human abilities in their HS tapes like Dez and Odom. I will be very, very surprised if Odom isn’t averaging at least 28 minutes a game during his freshman campaign.

    Yes. I have compared him to Eric Bledsoe which may be lofty expectations but he looks like the real deal.
