Just to be clear, our son Diondre' never said he wanted to go visit Nebraska nor Tennessee after he made his committment. This is the reason he waited so long to make his announcement in the first place. He has made visits to the schools he was interested in and Tennessee was one of them. There will be no more official visits unless it is with Clemson so please stop putting misintepreted information out unless you heard it come directly from Diondre's mouth yourself! He chose Clemson and the recruiting is over!!!!

Do you have a link to where FS1 quoted him?

"But lemme go visit Nebraska or Tennessee just in case"

Did FS1 say they were SMH or were you the one shaking your head because of the lemme go quote?

Welcome to the Clemson family. Your son will be in a wonderful place where he can grow as a man, student, and football player. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Don't worry about the internet rumor mill. It's constantly fed by irresponsible journalism that is rampant nowadays.


Re: I'm going to announce tonight....

And there you have it! If you truly are Overton's parents I'd like to welcome you to the Clemson Family!!! Don't be too disturbed by what you read on here. Tigernet has some good ones, and some bad ones, like any fan site.

Really, really wanted this one. Saw him on film when he first emerged almost a year ago and sorta marked him down as one of those potential game-changer talents.

His route-running was...iffy, at least on film. Rounds off his routes, looked a little raw, like a kid who hasn't played a ton of football. The rest of him is...outstanding, as close to another Calvin Johnson as I've seen in awhile. CJ was a 4.3 guy and Overton looks 4.4 or probably closer to 4.5, but Overton's still durn fast for his size and he lopes around effortlessly and gets separation even though - exactly like Megatron did at GT - he doesn't look like he's going that fast. Just pulls away. Tremendous natural hands, tremendous, smooth, natural ball-catcher...you see some guys with all the measurables who struggle to catch or adjust to the ball, this kid does, effortlessly. Elevates, looks like he can jump over the moon. Dunno what his vert is...a lot, whatever.

In terms of pure raw talent, this one is as good as we've gotten in awhile. I dunno if he's game-ready right out of the box like Megatron was - I still have nightmares about that 2004 game, which was CJ's second game in college - because Overton does look a bit unpolished but by the time he's a true soph or a redshirt freshman (if he doesn't beat a shirt), I'd expect this kid to be really emerging.

Could be dominant even by Clemson's recent standards, IMHO, if the work ethic is there. Which is saying something.


Good write up


Posted: Jan 4, 2016 4:49 AM
 

But you made a little mistake, CJs first game against GT was in 2006 when we beat them 31-7 i believe. I do agree with everything else, he looks a whole lot like Martavius Bryant imo. If he puts in the hard work, i think he can play as a true freshman.


Re: Good write up


Posted: Jan 4, 2016 4:54 AM
 

Nope.

Don't mean to be contrary...but it was 2004, and no, we did not beat them. CJ went ape, we blew that punt at the end...I do understand why you would want to block it from memory and forget it ever happened, but alas, it did.

What we have here is a failure to communicate. I believe Quozzel when using the initials CJ is referring to Calvin Johnson, while Bleed Orange, like most Tigers, sees the initials CJ and thinks Spiller. There. I'm certainly glad we got that straight. I will be moving on to settle differences in the middle east now.

My fault i was thinking you were saying it was CJ Spiller


Posted: Jan 4, 2016 9:09 AM
 

But you were taking about Calvin Johnson


nice analysis....thanks....our staff loves tall, lanky WR's


Posted: Jan 4, 2016 1:42 PM
 

and Mr. Overton seems to have the talent to go with the frame.

Yes, I'd say Clemson (aka WRU) develops their recruits nicely. It also helps to have QBs that can get the ball to them, and an O-Line & Back that can block! All round great decision.

2020 orange level membermilitary_donation.jpg

Booooooom!


Posted: Jan 4, 2016 11:51 AM
 

So happy to have this kid finally pull the trigger and announce his commitment. He will be having his name called A LOT during his Clemson career. Welcome aboard, Mr Overton. Great last couple of days.


Good student and athlete. Perfect fit.***
