Gregory Odom Jr. represents Howard, HBCU golf at PGA Tour Wells Fargo – USA TODAY

POTOMAC, Md. — The first time Sam Puryear called Gregory Odom Jr., the Howard University golf coach hung up on his potential recruit. 
“When I said I was from Howard, a HBCU, he literally was like, ‘So what are you, man? You a bus driver?’ That’s how he came off on me at first,” Puryear can say with a laugh now. “I said, ‘Tell you what – you better Google me,’ and I hung up on him.”
