One of the most underrecruited seniors in all of Illinois right now is Marcus Overstreet. Over the past several months while playing with the Illinois Jaguars program, the 6’8” power forward of Whitney Young High School has developed into a legitimate scholarship level prospect but still has limited interest. 

To date, Overstreet has a single offer which is from Governors State. The senior also has varying levels of interest from other programs. This weekend he will be taking a visit down to Governors State. 

With his play over the course of the spring and summer with the Illinois Jaguars, Overstreet was named to the second team of the 17U NY2LA Association. Throughout the associations season he was one of the more dominant post players. With the combination of his strength and motor, he is incredibly tough to stop once he gets the ball around the paint. As well with his solid frame he can just bully defenders and finish right through them. More than just a scorer, Overstreet also has a great ability to dominate the glass with his aggressiveness. 

There are some specific aspects Overstreet is wanting for his future school on and off the hardwood. For his future college team, he is looking for a strong program that “pushes it’s players.” Outside of basketball, Overstreet wants a school that has “good academics and a good engineering class.”

For the upcoming high school season, Overstreet will be a part of what looks to be one of the top high school teams not only in Illinois but the entire Midwest. Along with Overstreet Whitney Young has a loaded roster that includes AJ Casey, Dalen Davis, Xavier Amos, Daniel Johnson, Marcus Pigram, Jordan Streeter, and Antonio Munoz. When talking about the upcoming season Overstreet said, “We push ourselves every day on the court and in the weight room so we can win city and state this year.”

If Overstreet continues to play at the high level he has, only expect his college interest, and offers list to grow.
