Four-star wide receiver Diondre Overton has a top five of Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, Nebraska and Tennessee.

Diondre Overton has a time frame for his decision and the nation’s 32nd-ranked wide receiver gave Scout the latest.

“My top five is still Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, Nebraska and Tennessee,” Diondre Overton said. “No schools have the edge or are standing out right now. I’m keeping things neutral.

“I will likely take official visits to all five schools. I haven’t set any dates, but I should have them set pretty soon. I’m going to take them all before January because I’m making my announcement at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl on Jan. 3.

As for recent trips, his last stop was NC State for their game against Eastern Kentucky.

“It was a good visit,” said the 6-foot-5, 195-pound Overton. “The game day atmosphere was great and the crowd was into it. I was able to watch their offense and how they distribute the ball.

“I spoke with coach (Dave) Doeren, (safeties) coach (Clayton) White and (wide receivers) coach (George) McDonald. They all encouraged me to run with the Pack and to get down there more. The visit helped give me a better feel for things there."

Right now, the only scheduled trip North Carolina’s No. 1 wide receiver has is an unofficial visit to Clemson.

”I’m going on Oct. 3 for the Notre Dame game,” Overton said. “I like Clemson a lot and it’s a great school. I’m looking forward to seeing their offense in person and actually getting a feel for the environment.

”(Offensive line) coach (Robbie) Caldwell is the coach I talk to the most and I like him. I like how involved the staff is and their attitude of recruiting. I feel like they could help me reach my full potential.”

Page is 5-0 and continues their season on the road Friday against East Forsyth at 7:30 p.m.
