Florida Offers Arp’s DeMarvion Overshown
East Texas' leader in Division I FBS scholarship offers added another one on Sunday evening.
Arp 2018 safety DeMarvion Overshown collected offer No. 27 when Florida officially reached out, he announced via Twitter.
Overshown (6-4, 196) is the first area player in the current recruiting cycle to earn an offer from Florida.
The Arp playmaker holds offers from most of the nation's premier programs, including Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas, Texas A&M, and USC.
Arp reached the Class 3A Division II state semifinals last season after mild upsets of Newton and Crockett in back-to-back weeks at the regional level of the state playoffs. Overshown recorded 173 tackles and four total takeaways in the 15-game campaign and also caught four balls for 121 yards as a receiver.
Don’t be surprised to see Overshown in new roles as a senior. Arp will lose universal athlete Kayce Medlock to SMU in May.
Florida has claimed back-to-back SEC East Division titles in the two seasons under coach Jim McElwain, who is 19-8 overall as head coach. The Gators were 9-4 in 2016, earning a dominant 30-3 win over Iowa in the Citrus Bowl to end the year.
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.
