5-star, nation's No. 1 prospect names Clemson among top schools

By

A five-star prospect and the country’s top-ranked player in the 2023 class named Clemson among his top schools on Wednesday via social media.

Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton High School defensive lineman Lebbeus Overton released a top 12 that includes Clemson along with Ohio State, Southern Cal, Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, Alabama, LSU, Kentucky, Texas A&M, Tennessee and North Carolina.

Overton is ranked as the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2023 class regardless of position by both 247Sports and ESPN.

The 6-foot-4, 265-pound junior, who has collected more than two dozen offers, received an offer from Clemson on June 1.

As a sophomore in 2020, Overton played defensive end, defensive tackle and tight end, helping Milton to an 11-1 record and appearance in the Georgia 7A state quarterfinals.

Overton is the son of former Oklahoma offensive lineman Milton Overton, who is the current athletic director at Kennesaw State.
