Odom also added two offensive lineman in Delgado, from Deer Valley High School in Glendale, Arizona, and Lawrence, from Central High School in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Hansford joins the Tigers' defensive line, which has seen five of its members go to the NFL in this decade. Hansford, from Mary Pearson High School in Forsyth, Georgia, recorded 107 tackles, 17.5 of which were for a loss of yards, and 9.5 sacks in his senior season.

Lastly, is Lindsey ScottJr., a dual-threat quarterback from East Mississippi. Scott led EMCC to a 2017 NJCAA national championship, the school's fourth title in seven years.

Scott also proved to be a threat on the ground, tallying 729 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns.

All six players were rated as three-star recruits, according to 247Sports, and Odom and his staff will travel across Missouri to discuss their recruits and the upcoming season.
