Corona (Calif.) Santiago receiver Miles O'Dell says coaches are wanting to see first two games, and he's looking to start strong and get his first offer...

Corona (Calif.) Santiago athlete Miles O'Dell enters his senior year, anxious to make his mark and land his first offer.

“I’ve heard the most from San Diego State, UTEP and Cal Poly so far,” said Odell. “I also like UCLA and Arizona. I camped at UCLA and San Diego State.”

Odell can play on either side of the ball, and is getting recruited for both offense and defense.

“San Diego State likes me as a corner and Cal Poly and UTEP like me as a receiver,” said Odell.

And Odell is fine with either position, though he likes having options on both sides.

“I like both the same, but I’d rather go in as an athlete,” said Odell.

The 6-0, 175-pound Odell said he’s open to any region of the country, but admits that the Golden State is where he prefers.

“I want to go to a school that wins a lot, but I’d kind of like to stay in California, not too far from home,” said Odell. “I’m just looking for that kind of school.”

Odell said he hopes to take some official visits this fall, and has talked with San Diego State about setting one up.

“Coach Rocky Long is recruiting me for San Diego State,” said Odell, who’s teammate, Jemond Hazely, has already committed to the Aztecs.

In addition, Odell said he’s hoping UCLA and Arizona pick up their interest in him.

“Most schools are saying they want to see my senior film, and my first two games,” said Odell.

Last fall, Odell had 32 receptions for 373 yards and two touchdowns.

Academically, he has a 2.83 GPA and will take the SAT in October.
