Odom was born in Cordele, Georgia, to Lessie Odom, then 16. When he was 4 years old, he moved with family to Philadelphia. He began running as a sixth-grader at Shoemaker Middle School. He later attended Overbrook High School. In the 1995 National Scholastic Indoor Track and Field Championships in Syracuse, New York, Odom set three national records.

Although recruited by every major track program in the United States, Odom could not attend college because his academics were subpar. He went to Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, Alabama, where his career derailed.
