Overton To East Carolina

GREENVILLE, N.C. - Greenville(N.C.) South Central linebacker Montese Overton has made his pledge to play college football at East Carolina known.

The Conference USA school made the 6-3, 212 pound linebacker a high priority this fall in their first full recruiting campaign under new head coach Ruffin McNeill at the Greenville based school.

Overton chose the Pirates of Conference USA over offers from N.C. State and South Carolina chiefly, as well as other lower interest offers from Arkansas, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Duke.

Overton's parents both played basketball at East Carolina and he told his local newspaper, The Daily Reflector, "I've always wanted to put on the purple and gold and go to college there. I love the people, the environment and Coach Ruffin (McNeill)."
