Top Sophomore Taking Trips

Lyndhurst Brush athlete Jordan Overton impressed last season as a sophomore starter, and established himself as a top 2016 prospect in Ohio. Being able to play both cornerback and wide receiver only increases his value.

Jordan Overton showed last season why he is a 2016 prospect of note in Ohio, and he starred on both sides of the football last year as a sophomore at Lyndhurst Brush.

Overton, 5-foot-11, 170-pounds, already holds scholarship offers and he could be adding more after this summer's camp season. He visited Michigan last weekend.

"My visit to Michigan was great and I really enjoyed myself up there," Overton stated. "I got to spend a lot of time with the coaches and saw their great facilities. I'm getting very comfortable with their program, and like it up there a lot. I've been there before, and I saw the game with Nebraska last year."

"They said they're very interested in me, and they are going to be recruiting me throughout the process," he added. "They want to see me in camp this summer, and I'm definitely going to be there. That will be the next time I will see the coaching staff."

"I have a good feel for the program now, and think I know what they're all about," he continued. "I know they have a great football tradition and I would get a great education. It's one of the top schools in the nation, and I'm very interested."

With offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Kent State and Toledo, Overton is way ahead of the game for a sophomore. He is hoping to add BCS offers.

"I'm also speaking with Purdue, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Michigan State and Penn State," Overton explained. "I will be going to Ohio State this weekend and I'm looking forward to that a lot. I will also be going to Purdue and Michigan State later on."

"Ohio State is a place I'm familiar with and I love it there because I've been around it my whole life," he continued. "I was there last year for the Indiana game and loved it, so I'm looking forward to getting back there."

"Purdue is another school I'm very familiar with, and I know Coach (Darrell) Hazell, Coach (Marcus) Freeman and Coach (Taver) Johnson really well," he admitted. "I could definitely see myself playing at Purdue, just because of how much I think of their staff."
