Georgia Standout Thinking of UM Visit

When you haven't tasted defeat in three years of high school football, it's no surprise when your current college favorites are some of the nation's premier programs. That's the case with this talented offensive line prospect.

Lilburn (Ga.) Parkview standout David Overmyer recently completed a summer camp tour that included stops at Middle Tennessee State, Clemson, and Auburn. On average, he was 6-5 and 266, and his best 40-time was a 5.17 at Clemson and his best shuttle time was a 4.93 at Clemson.

A full academic qualifier, Overmyer had a busy spring talking to college coaches from all over.

"I talked to a bunch of coaches on the phone," Overmeyer told me. "Clemson, Florida State, Virginia, Georgia, Auburn, Arkansas, Tulane, Nebraska, Miami, Tennessee, North Carolina, Northwestern, there were lots of them…"

The talented offensive line prospect said he has four written scholarship offers as well.

"Four of them have sent one in the mail," he said. "Vanderbilt, Virginia, FSU, and Clemson. Some of the other schools have talked about it as well."

Overmyer said he remains wide open, but does have a few schools in mind that he would like to take official visits to.

"I'll probably visit Florida State," he said. "I've already seen a lot of schools but official visits are different. I'm also interested in Virginia, Georgia, Auburn, Clemson, Tennessee, and North Carolina."

Overmyer was then asked about the University of Miami.

"They called and said they're real interested," he said. "Their coach said he'd like for me to come there to visit to check things out. He came up here in May and when we talked, he said he liked how I moved. Miami's a nice school, but it's a little far from home. It's still one of the possibilities I have for an official visit, but I'm just not sure right now."

Overmyer, who said he currently favors Florida State, is aiming to continue the winning streak.

"My whole class hasn't lost yet in high school," he said. "Our freshmen team went undefeated and we've gone 30-0 the last two seasons. So my biggest goal is definitely to hopefully repeat and I think we're definitely capable of that."
