Texas A&M lineman Lebbeus Overton to enter transfer portal

Texas A&M defensive lineman Lebbeus Overton is planning to enter the transfer portal, he announced Tuesday on social media.

The 6-foot-5, 265-pound defensive end from Milton, Georgia, will still have two years of eligibility remaining.

Overton was a five-star recruit in the 2023 recruiting class before reclassifying to the 2022 cycle to enroll early at Texas A&M. He was still ranked as a five-star and the No. 6 prospect overall despite the move up a class.

He saw action in 11 games during his freshman season in 2022, and had 31 total tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack. He played in 12 games this season and had 17 total tackles with three quarterback hurries.

"After thoughtful prayer and consideration, I have decided to pursue growth and development where my skill set will be utilized by opportunities afforded through the NCAA transfer portal," Overton posted to Instagram.

His brother, Micaiah Overton, is also planning to transfer from Texas A&M. Micaiah is a 6-foot-4, 300-pound defensive tackle who is transferring as a grad transfer with one year of eligibility remaining.
