Top JUCO Tailback Is Still Looking For A Home

Even though he was one of the more productive runners in the country over the past two seasons, Mt. San Antonio RB Jamal Overton (5-9, 205) still has yet to get a solid offer to play for a four-year program. He updated recently on what he's been up to since the end of the 2013 season and where things stand on the recruiting front as we get closer to Signing Day on February 5th...

"Right now, it's been sorta slow," Overton said. "Towson talked to me a little and I've heard from a few other schools, but mostly, it's been pretty quiet.

"School just restarted so I've been focusing a lot on that and also working out and running. Stuff like that. I just need to keep in shape and see where things go this spring I think."

In only his second season of playing tailback, Overton had a solid sophomore campaign, posting 882 yards and six scores and grabbed 17 receptions for 92 yards after posting 938 yards and 10 touchdowns while also hauling in nine receptions for 88 yards and two more scores as a freshman in 2012.

"Up until last season, I really hadn't played running back before," Overton told back in the summer. "I signed with Iowa as a corner and mostly played DB in high school, but I just didn't like it there and I came back and (Mt. San Antonio) was the right fit for me and they needed a tailback, so I knew I would get the chance to get some carries and see what I could do.

"I'm an all-around back. I can do whatever my team needs me to do. I can run inside or make people miss and go outside, I can catch the ball and I can block pretty well too."

Overton is set to graduate in May and he will have two years to play two starting this fall.
