Sophomore Holds Three Offers

Lyndhurst (OH) Brush recently completed an impressive season in Ohio, making the playoffs for the first time in years. Sophomore athlete Jordan Overton impressed with his speed and quickness.

Sophomore Jordan Overton is one of the top 2016 prospects in Ohio, and the Lyndhurst Brush athlete is coming off a fine sophomore season.

Overton, 5-foot-11, 170-pounds, played both wide receiver and cornerback this season and could project to either position at the next level.

"My season was great and I learned a lot playing varsity for the first time," Overton stated. "It was our first playoff experience since 2005, so it was a lot of fun. I think I did really well at wide receiver, and I did my best to help our team."

"From running track, I have the speed to make plays out on the field," he added. "I need to work on getting stronger, and that's my focus in this off-season. I want to get out to a lot of camps next summer."

With offers from Akron, Kent State and Bowling Green, Overton has hit the recruiting radar at an early age. He has other schools showing interest.

"I have taken a few visits this season and checked out some great schools," he explained. "I will be going to Ohio State for the Indiana game, and I'm excited about that. I know their program well and think a lot of Ohio State. I will also be going to Cincinnati in a few weeks, and I've always liked the program."

"I've also been to Penn State and Michigan already, and loved both places," Overton continued. "I was at Penn State for the Michigan game and it was a great experience. I had no idea their games were that crazy. I'm being recruited by Coach (Anthony) Midget, and he's a cool guy."

"Michigan is another school I like a lot, and I was there for the Nebraska game," he stressed. "I love Michigan, and wish they could have won that game. I'm being recruited by Coach (Roy) Manning and Coach (Greg) Mattison, and they said they loved my film. I will be going to camp at all these schools next summer."
