Defensive lineman Lebbeus Overton will announce his commitment Friday afternoon on national television.

According to Adam Friedman of Rivals, the five-star prospect from Milton, Georgia, will declare his decision during halftime of the GEICO High School Basketball Nationals on ESPN2. Overton's mother, Eunice Thomas, said he's narrowed down his choice to Georgia, Texas A&M, or Oregon.

Overton also made official visits to Oklahoma and Ohio State after deciding to graduate this year instead of 2023.

Per Friedman, tight end Micaiah Overton plans on transferring from Liberty to the school his younger brother chooses. Oregon is the only one of those three schools to offer him a scholarship, but Texas A&M has presented him a preferred walk-on spot.

Rivals already ranks Texas A&M's 2022 recruiting class first in the nation. Like Georgia, the younger Overton would be the Aggies' sixth five-star prospect and 30th incoming player graded three stars or higher. At No. 32 in their overall rankings, he's the top unsigned defensive recruit ahead of Friday's announcement.
