Back to the Lone Star State

Ohio State sent out an offer to 2018 defensive prospect DeMarvion Overshown (Arp, TX / Arp) on Tuesday. Overshown is listed as a strong safety/outside linebacker, but will most likely grow in to be a full-time linebacker in college as he currently checks in at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds. His frame will allow him to put on at least 20 more pounds.

From Arp High School in Texas, Overshown is a four-star prospect and a top 150 player, according to 247Sports. With 16 total offers, Texas is believed to be Overshown’s top school at this point. The Longhorns will be tough to beat with their recent momentum of hiring Tom Herman and ace Texas recruiter Tim Beck to the staff. Still, there is mutual interest between the Buckeyes and Overshown. However, for the Buckeyes to be a legitimate contender, they will need Overshown to get to Columbus for a visit at some point over the spring or summer.

Below is a highlight clip of Overshown, found on Hudl.

The Sunshine Connection?

According to reports, 2018 outside linebacker Rocky Shelton (Fort Lauderdale, FL / St. Thomas Aquinas) is in the process of planning a trip to Columbus for this spring. Shelton is a three-star prospect, but holds 22 offers, most notably from Florida State, LSU, Penn State, Tennessee and Wisconsin. However, Ohio State has not yet offered.

The Buckeyes have created a pipeline at St. Thomas Aquinas and look to be in on another one if this visit does happen on Shelton’s own dime. The Buckeyes will continue to evaluate Shelton into his senior season and if Urban Meyer and his staff finally do offer, you would think that it would vault them towards the top of his list.

Like Overshown, Shelton has a highlight clip on Hudl— which can be seen below.
