Texas Standouts Dramodd Odoms and Zion Williams Make College Commitments

    Two highly recruited linemen from the state of Texas in the class of 2025 made significant commitments over the holiday weekend. Dramodd Odoms from Houston Lamar has committed to SMU, while Zion Williams from Lufkin has chosen LSU.

    Dramodd Odoms announces commitment to SMU

     Odoms, a 4-star recruit out of Houston, has committed to Southern Methodist University (SMU). Odoms picked the Mustangs over schools that included LSU, Mississippi State, and Texas A&M. He is rated as the number 7 offensive tackle in the country and the number 9 player in Texas according to 247Sports. Odoms is a top 150 prospect in the nation and one of the highest rated recruits to commit to SMU. He becomes the 17th commit in the 2025 class for the Mustangs.

    Odoms possesses a long, lean frame with an extended reach that he uses to his advantage in close quarters. Standing at 6 foot 6 and weighing 275 pounds he has the requisite frame that attracts college programs seeking out next level offensive line talent. His build will allow him to add healthy bulk at the next level. He has flexible hips, he excels in the running game and Odoms has the ability to reach the second level with ease. His excellent short-area quickness enhances his effectiveness in the trenches where he dominates the competition. This is a huge commitment for SMU, as they look to solidify their future along the offensive line as they head into the ACC.

     Zion Williams commits to LSU

    Williams, a standout in the class of 2025 from Lufkin, has committed to LSU, marking a significant recruiting win for the Tigers. Williams is one of the top defensive tackles in the country and brings a formidable presence to the trenches. Williams is ranked at number 63 at his position nationally and number 92 in the state of Texas according to 247Sports.

    Standing at 6 foot 5 and weighing 330 pounds, Williams is stout against the run and his ability to hold the line of scrimmage at the point of attack enables him to control the action up front. He delivers a powerful punch at impact, he uses his length well, enabling him to shock and shed blockers at engagement. His superb short-area quickness allows him to flow well to the ball carrier and he shows the burst to make tackles behind the line of scrimmage for losses. Williams is a space eater who has the brute strength to win against double teams and make plays. He fits the mold of your true three technique or nose guard, which made him an attractive defensive prospect to college programs around the country. He has the frame and skill set to make an immediate impact when he gets to Baton Rouge. Williams chose LSU over Texas, TCU, and Texas A&M.
