2018 ATH Grayson Overstreet talks WSLS player of the year award, recruiting

ROANOKE, Va. -- A one-man wrecking crew for Staunton River (Va.), Overstreet was a one-man wrecking crew as he captured the class 3A state runner-up. But what schools have their eyes on him? He gives the latest.

Class of 2018 athlete Grayson Overstreet was a bowling ball of sorts as a running back. He tallied nearly 3,000 yards rushing, 46 touchdowns and a VHSL state record 62 two-point conversions.

No offers have come yet, but Overstreet has certainly grabbed the attention of a number of schools. All have looked at him as a running back and a linebacker, in Virginia Tech, Virginia, Furman and East Tennessee.

Overstreet made three total visits this fall to the first two. He attended a pair of Hokies games and one Cavaliers game.

"I’ve grown up a Tech fan and I like Tech," Overstreet said. "But I like UVA, too. It’s more of, whatever I can get the most of, whatever school is what I’m gonna try to do."


Overstreet said he's heard a bit from assistant coach Vance Vice for Virginia Tech. And he plans to attend the Hokies' junior day Jan. 15 and add to what he was able to learn during his two gameday visits.

"I got to go see all of the team football rooms, see the jerseys, stuff like that," Overstreet said. "I got to eat with some of the coaches, talk to them, so that was real cool."

Overstreet has no other visits set, but said he hopes to attend one of Virginia's junior days as well.
