After moving from safety to linebacker, DeMarvion Overshown was a star for Texas.
The former four-star prospect from Arp, Texas, has always been known as a hard hitter, but was buried behind Caden Sterns and BJ Foster at security checkpoint. He changed jobs last season under former defensive coordinator Chris Ash and the rest is history.
In 2020, Overshown had an exceptional year recording 60 tackles, two sacks and one interception. He was able to continue that success this season under Pete Kwiatkowski as he is already approaching 60 tackles and also leads the team in this category.
On3 published a list of 15 players who saw their draft supply increase this year, and “Agent Zero” was among the listed players.
Here’s what they had to say about the Longhorns defensive leader:
Overshown is second in the Big 12 with 52 tackles and established himself as an early-round prospect in the eyes of the scouts. In the Longhorns’ 52-51 loss to Oklahoma, Overshown had eight tackles, two tackles for loss, one sack, one fumble, two quarterbacks and one blocked kick. “This last game against Oklahoma was important for him in the first quarter,” said a scout. “He’s kind of the quick and quick guy of the new age, who’s going to get the ball, not quite like the nervous guy and changing direction, but in terms of running from touch to touch and hitting people and creating. impact pieces. We have starting notes (NFL) on him.
The Longhorns know Overshown is an elite talent and will definitely need his speed and intelligence the rest of the season as stopping the race has been a problem for them.
Overshown has been one of the most consistent players on the defensive end of the ball, and Texas badly needs him to reach their goal of becoming the Big 12.
