Five-star LeBeus Overton, one of the most unexpected prospects of 2022, will announce and sign his commitment to the GEICO High School Basketball Nationals half-time (around 3pm) on ESPN2 on Friday.
The Milton, Ga. Star Defensive End, a former member of the 2023 recruiting class, announced in early February that he would graduate with the 2022 class and make official visits to Texas A&M, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Oregon.
According to Eunice Thomas, Overton’s mother, the choice will come down to Georgia, Texas A&M or Oregon. All three schools received overtones on campus for official visits this month.
Overton’s older brother, Mikaia, added a sacrifice to the final expansion of this appointment. Mikaya Overton is a former Liberty player who will transfer and play at the same school as her brother. She has received a scholarship offer from Oregon and many other schools but has not been awarded the Georgia and Texas A&M Scholarship. The Aggies, however, have offered the Elder Overton a preferred walk-on spot. He will announce his promise after his younger brother, but probably not on the same day.
For the five-star defensive lineman, Overton has built strong relationships with coaches in all three of his finalists but he was careful not to squeeze his hand. It will be interesting to see if Texas A&M can add Overton to their already top 2022 recruitment class and the fourth highest rated recruitment class of all time. If he signs with Aggies, Jimbo Fisher and his staff will bring together Georgia’s third-highest-paid recruiting class of all time ahead of the 2018 class.
