Overshown has been leaning towards Texas for quite some time, and ultimately pulled the trigger when he announced his commitment Wednesday afternoon.
The 2018 prospect's pledge comes one day after the Longhorns added the commitment of four-star running back Keaontay Ingram. Overshown ranks as the No. 64 overall prospect in the 2018 recruiting class and No. 7 nationally at the safety position.
DeMarvion Overshown is one of the top defensive prospects in Texas for the 2018 class thanks to his outstanding frame potential for the safety position, his overall athleticism, and his willingness to sell out physically on every snap. Overshown is a big hit waiting to happen at the back end of the defense. He has above average ball skills as he plays Texas Class 3A (small-school) football so he plays both ways and in the return game. Overshown flashes great closing speed. He can improve the technical aspects of playing in the secondary, but his natural body control suggests his fluidity will continue to get better as he develops. Overshown is a high-ceiling prospect and one of the nation's top safeties. -- Gabe Brooks
