Oklahoma 5-Star DL Prospect Lebbeus Overton Delivers What Looks Like Bad News for Sooners

Oklahoma may have to wait a little longer to land its first 5-star defensive tackle in more than a decade.

Lebbeus Overton, arguably the nation’s top defensive line prospect in the class of 2022 — he was consensus No. 1 in the class of 2023 before he reclassified to this year — told On3 Wednesday that he’ll make his announcement this Friday.

Overton reportedly will make his announcement at 2 p.m. on ESPN2 during halftime of the Geico National High School Basketball Tournament.

That’s most likely bad news for the Sooners, as Overton had an official visit scheduled for April 23 — the date of the Red/White Game and, in recent history, OU’s biggest recruiting day of the year.
