Colorado Latest to Offer Arp’s DeMarvion Overshown
In what has become a common occurrence of late, Arp junior DeMarvion Overshown was the beneficiary of multiple offers on Wednesday.
Following an offer from South Carolina earlier in the day, the Tigers’ safety announced via Twitter that Colorado has extended him an invitation.

Overshown (6-4, 196) now has 21 offers, the most of any recruit in East Texas’ 2018 class.
Arp’s junior safety played a major role in his team’s trip to the Class 3A Division II state semifinals this past season. He recorded 173 tackles, forced four total takeaways and also caught four passes for 121 yards as a receiver.
Overshown subsequently became Scout.com’s 73rd-ranked prospect regardless of position nationally and a four-star recruit.
Colorado rose to prominence in 2016, earning a trip to the Pac-12 Conference championship game in December. The Buffaloes, who are coached by Mike MacIntyre, fell to Washington, 41-10, but played in the Alamo Bowl and finished the year with a 10-4 record.
It was Colorado’s first 10-win season since 2001.
Overshown, like all college football prospects currently in their junior year of high school, will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him in February of 2018.
