Olympic medalist announces plans to play football for Mizzou
Barry Odom just picked up a commitment for 2017. Only this pledge isn’t your typical prospect, he’s an Olympian bringing home a medal from Rio.
J’den Cox, who recently won a bronze medal in wrestling, announced he wants to play football for Mizzou for one season.

Cox is a local Columbia, Mo. product, having played linebacker at Hickman High School.
After cheering him on in the Olympics this summer, we look forward to watching Cox back on the gridiron next season.
