Chris Overton to take official visit to Akron

Chris Overton (Cleveland, Ohio/Glenville) is looking for that first offer.

He’s got Akron, Army, Kent State, Indiana and Hawaii interested in him.

Thursday, the 5-foot-10, 165-pound senior wide receiver will take an official visit to Akron when the Zips take on the University of Central Florida.

“I think I’m pretty close [to an offer] from Akron and Kent State. It would be nice to get it. I’m just ready for that first one. I’ve been to Akron many times. I know what they offer.”

Overton also hinted at wanting to see Air Force as well.
