Elliott, Scott, Caldwell watch Overton

Clemson offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott were joined in Greensboro by offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell on Monday afternoon.

The trio of Tiger assistants were at the Greensboro Coliseum to watch 2016 wide receiver Diondre Overton play basketball. The 6-5, 195-pound junior from Page High School (Greensboro) spoke with TheClemsonInsider later that night.

“It was an honor to have them come watch me play,” Overton said. “I feel like I had to play my best game, to kind of impress them. I had to stay humble and keep playing my game.”

It’s been over a month since Clemson first contacted Overton, who now has offers from most of the instate schools and West Virginia.

“At first, I heard from Old Dominion and N.C. State,” he said. “Right after that, Clemson came in.”

The Tigers have already established themselves as a contender.

“It’s exciting, because Clemson is wide receiver university,” Overton said, “And I’m looking to explore my options right now, but Clemson is a good school.”

Dabo Swinney stopped by Page last week. N.C. State and Wake Forest also visited.

This weekend, Overton will take a Junior Day visit to UNC. He’ll head to Clemson the following weekend for his first trip to Tigertown.

As a junior, Overton caught 65 passes for 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns.
