Oklahoma offers Liberty transfer Micaiah Overton, brother of five-star DL Lebbeus Overton

When Micaiah Overton arrived at Liberty, he was a 218 pound tight end. Now, he’s leaving Liberty as a 6-foot-3, 300 pound defensive tackle.

247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong reported yesterday that Micaiah had entered his name into the transfer portal and that he plans to play with his brother Lebbeus Overton at his next stop.

Oklahoma associate head coach, co-defensive coordinator and defensive tackles coach Todd Bates offered Micaiah today.

At Bessemer Academy in Alabama, Micaiah had 55 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and three sacks as a senior. He also caught 16 passes for 368 yards and five touchdowns that season.

Micaiah’s brother, Lebbeus Overton, is a five-star defensive line target for the Sooners that recently reclassified into the 2022 class. Oklahoma made the cut into Lebbeus’ top-five schools. Lebbeus’ plan is to enroll at the school of his choice this summer.

He’s locked in on Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas A&M. Micaiah will join on visits to Norman, Eugene and College Station in March. Those dates have not been locked in yet. – Wiltfong, 247Sports.
