USC Offers Arp’s DeMarvion Overshown
Another day, another offer for Arp junior safety DeMarvion Overshown.
The talented Tigers 2018 defender announced via Twitter that USC became the 24th Division I FBS program to offer him, Friday afternoon.
Since last Wednesday, Overshown has picked up 16 offers. His 24 total invitations rank first among East Texans in the current recruiting cycle.
Overshown is the first area recruit to be offered by the Trojans.
USC is coming off a successful 2016 season that ended with an exciting 52-49 Rose Bowl win over Penn State. The Trojans were 10-3 last year under Clay Helton, who was in his first full season as head coach.
The Trojans have captured 11 national championships in their history, the most recent coming in 2004. USC has also produced seven Heisman Trophy winners.
Overshown 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.
The Tigers’ standout subsequently became Scout.com’s 73rd-ranked prospect regardless of position nationally.
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.
