Former Texas A&M DL LT Overton has found his new home for the 2024 season


Former 2022 five-star and Texas A&M defensive lineman LT Overton, who entered the transfer portal earlier this month, is, according to On3’s Chad Simmons, headed to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, committing to head coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide on Tuesday, Dec. 19. Hailing from Alpharetta, Georgia, Overton was ranked as the 17th overall prospect in the 2024 cycle according to 247Sports and was widely considered a future first-round NFL Draft pick after a lengthy career with the Maroon & White. However, in just 23 appearances in the last two seasons, Overton recorded 48 tackles (18 solo tackles) and just one sack, which came during his 2022 freshman campaign. With few starts under his belt, primarily due to the vast depth the Aggies possessed in the defensive trenches this season, it was somewhat surprising that Overton chose to enter the portal instead of simply waiting out the process. Still, hey, that’s how things transpire in today’s college football landscape.
