Florida State Latest to Offer Arp’s DeMarvion Overshown
It's been a busy week for Arp junior safety DeMarvion Overshown. On Sunday, he picked up his eighth Division I FBS offer since Wednesday.
Overshown (6-4, 196) announced via Twitter that Florida State became the latest school to enter the pursuit, making the Seminoles the 16th team to offer the Arp standout.
Since Wednesday, Overshown has also been offered by Baylor, Oklahoma, UCLA, Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M. His 16 offers rank second in East Texas' 2018 class, behind Carthage running back Keaontay Ingram, who has 17.
Arp was one of the final regional teams standing through the 2016 football season. It reached the Class 3A Division II state semifinals after successfully navigating out of a region that included Newton, Crockett and its own district champion — Elysian Fields.
Overshown recorded 173 tackles as a safety and forced four total takeaways in 15 games. He also caught four passes for 121 yards as a receiver.
Arp may find more uses for the athlete this season. It is forced to turn away from SMU bound athlete Kayce Medlock and a quarterback that started for a season and a half.
Overshown is the first East Texan in the current recruiting cycle to pick up an offer from Florida State.
The Seminoles are coached by Jimbo Fisher. FSU, which claimed the 2013 national championship, has finished 10-3 in each of the past two seasons. Florida State defeated Michigan in the Orange Bowl to cap 2016.
Florida State is 78-17 in seven seasons under Fisher.
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.
