On the Offer: 2026 Wide Receiver Daniel Odom talks about his offer from Ole Miss
OXFORD, Miss. — Even the snow days don’t stop the Ole Miss football staff from working overtime to find the next great Rebel. Head coach Lane Kiffin and crew looked out West recently and put an offer on the table for swiftly-rising 2026 wide receiver Daniel Odom out of St. John Bosco in California.

We visited with Odom to talk about his offer from Ole Miss and more.
“It meant a lot,” Odom explained about hearing from Ole Miss. “I’ve seen great receivers come out of this organization. What stands out, I would say, is them offering me off of the great things I’ve shown off film.”
The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder out of Bellflower, CA is quickly establishing himself as a household name. He holds a number of Power 5 offers, including: Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Charlotte, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oregon, San Diego State, Washington, and Washington State.
He holds SEC offers from: Georgia, Alabama, A&M, Tennessee, Texas, and now Ole Miss.
In addition to the Rebels, Odom is hearing quite a bit from a number of powerhouse schools. “I would say recently Texas, Tennessee, Oregon, and a few other schools.”
He’s not yet ranked by the national services, but that will be coming for sure. This young playmaker has a ton of upside with a tremendous amount of talent. Odom already has notched some big moments for St. John Bosco, where his athleticism on that big frame, along with his speediness when it comes to route-running, has been garnering notice.
He has the makings to evolve into an elite route runner, and the Rebels aren’t wasting time building a relationship with him.
Odom finished the season with 36 receptions for 548 yards and 7 TDs.

Odom talked about what is important to him as he navigates the recruiting process.
“I’m looking forward to the relationships I make and the schooling I can get. And the plays I’ll be able to make for the program.”
Odom tells us he is headed to Miami next week and has some additional places he hopes to visit. Perhaps with an Ole Miss offer in hand, Oxford will be one of his destinations along the way.
Odom has undeniable talent, and he is already setting the bar high for the 2026 pool of national recruits. We asked him what he feels his “x-factor” is when it comes to creating chaos for opposing defenses.
“My X factor would be I can make plays at the high point catch and make a man miss in the open field.”

Odom is a dynamic player from an elite high school program, and we look forward to keeping the Rebel faithful in the loop about him.
