OUTLOOK: Oden is considered one of the best athletes on the team and should see time at the offensive tackle position. He should factor into the offensive line rotation and could also get snaps on special teams. He started at tackle for the Red in the Red-White Spring Game.

2009: He started once, at Alabama, and also played against Missouri State, Texas A&M, Eastern Michigan, South Carolina, Troy and Mississippi State. He was the first Razorback true freshman to start on the offensive line since Shawn Andrews in 2001. Both Oden and Andrews made their first starts at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala. He was a member of an offensive line which blocked for a unit that led the SEC in scoring offense (36.0) and passing offense (295.5), and was third in total offense (427.3). The Razorbacks were 10th in the nation in passing offense, 20th in total offense, ninth in scoring and 11th in passing efficiency. The line did not allow a sack against Missouri State, Eastern Michigan or East Carolina. Oden blocked for seven 100-yard receiving games and three 100-yard rushing performances. His blocking helped Arkansas set school passing records for yards in a game (447 vs. Missouri State), passing yards in a season (3,842), passing yards average (295.5), passing touchdowns in a season (32) and passing first downs in a season (147). He also protected quarterback Ryan Mallett, who set or tied 16 different records.

HIGH SCHOOL: He originally signed to play for Arkansas in 2008 but attended Hargrave Military Academy, which finished with a 10-1 record. Rivals listed him as the No. 8 prep school prospect in the nation and Scout listed him as a Top 25 prep school prospect. Oden split time between tight end and defensive end during his high school career. He concentrated on basketball prior to his junior season before playing his two years of high school football. He played as a junior at Dunbar (Ohio) High School. He played both football and basketball as a sophomore at Lawrence North High School. He led his basketball team to a state championship. He played in Arkansas' Bud Walton Arena while in high school as part of Real Deal on the Hill, an AAU basketball tournament. He played for Coach Robert Prunty at Hargrave Military Academy. Oden was also recruited by Ohio State, Indiana, Oregon State, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Purdue, North Carolina State and Kansas.
