2016 Buffalo Football Recruiting: ATH Jordan Overton commits to the Bulls

Buffalo lands a huge MAC-coveted commit in Jordan Overton.

Buffalo fans need to get familiar with the name of their newest recruit, Jordan Overton.  The newly signed athlete is rated as a three-star prospect according to 247Sports' composite rankings.  The 5-foot-10 180 pound athlete hails from Lyndhurst, Ohio which is a suburb just east of Cleveland where he attended Brush High School.  247Sports also reported that Overton had offers from Air Force, Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Fordham, Indiana State, Kent State, Kentucky, Navy, Ohio, St. Franics, Robert Morris, Toledo, and Western Michigan.  The newly signed 3-star prospect also was speaking to numerous power five conference schools as well before making his decision to join the Bulls' recruiting class of 2016.

Hustle Belt was able to reach out to Overton to see why he thought Buffalo was the right fit for him.  "First, a great coaching staff, and great academics!" he told Hustle Belt. Overton also explained that his main priority is to get his college degree, but would also like to help the Bulls win conference championships and play in bowl games.

Overton is listed as an athlete, and his speed and athleticism allowed him to play defensive back and wide receiver at Brush High School.  However, Buffalo is viewing him as a wide receiver, punt and kick returner.

Overton is Buffalo's fourth commit to their 2016 class and will join fellow 2016 quarterback commit Max Bortenschlager as the hopeful quarterback-wide receiver combination of Buffalo's near future.
