WR Diondre Overton Profile

Clemson already holds commitments from two 2016 wide receivers that will look to make an early impact for the Tigers in a couple of seasons. With 4-star commits Tavares Chase (Bradenton, FL) and Cornell Powell (Greenville, N.C.) already in tow, Clemson's staff is still pushing to add another prospect at the same position.

It has been widely speculated that either Tennessee or Clemson will land 2016 4-star Page High wide receiver Diondre Overton. The Greensboro product recently spoke with CUTigers to express his thoughts those two schools and more.
R Speaking of Tennessee and Clemson being at the top of his list Overton said, "Not necessarily. I've just visited them the most and have a lot of interest in them, so I know more about them than other colleges. Both have a great coaching staff, great facilities and both their offenses are a good fit. I couldn't really say who else is at the top, because I haven't visited many others."

Overton also recently took part in The Opening Regional in Charlotte.

"It was a great experience. There was a lot of competition out there." Overton continued saying, "There were tons of friends out there I knew. It was basically like the Rivals Camp with the drills and 1-on-1s," he said.

With the summer just beginning, Overton knows that the recruiting game is going to keep him busy in the coming months.

"I have several camps set up." The receiver noted, "Visits will depend on what my stepdad does with the coaches," Overton added.

Before he can specify a list of finalists, Overton has a list of suitors he's got to learn more about.

"I'm hearing the most from Clemson, Tennessee, NC State, South Carolina, West Virginia, Nebraska, North Carolina and Michigan," said Overton. The 6-foot-5, 195 pound receiver ranks as the No. 1 wideout in North Carolina and as the No. 22 receiver in the country in 2016 by Scout. Overton finished his junior season with 65 receptions for 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns.
