"I have checked them out and it looks like a good place to be," said Overton of Colorado. "I am anxious to find out more about them, but right now I like what I have seen so far."

Overton stars on both sides of the ball at Moreau Catholic, but he does believe his future is on offense at tight end. "I am big and I can catch the ball well. I know how to get open and I work very well with other members of my team."

The Buffs are one of six main schools he is currently interested in. "I like USC, Cal, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, and BYU. USC is my favorite school. The Pac Ten has good schools and everything seems real nice with USC. I have checked them out on the internet and I like their facilities."

Overton carries a 2.8 core GPA and is taking the SAT on March 12th. He would like to major in Business.
