Overstreet Receives Unconditional Release
Orangebloods.com a chance to catch up with Jalen Overstreet to discuss what lies ahead for the redshirt sophomore athlete.
Overstreet said he has received an unconditional release from the University of Texas and has the option to transfer to any school, but has not made any decisions about his next step at this point.
"I don't necessarily know where I am going to go yet," Overstreet said Thursday. "I was just given my official release papers yesterday, so I'm still kind of waiting to see where things go from here."
Prior to committing to Texas, Overstreet had offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri and Texas Tech. It is still early in the process but he has heard from a couple of schools.
"There have been a few schools who have reached out but it's just the beginning talks. I haven't made any decisions yet. When things get more serious, I can share more details, but as of now it's in the beginning stages."
The redshirt sophomore made the move from quarterback to running back in 2013, where saw the field in nine games and rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns. He also saw playing time on special teams.
Overstreet said he doesn't have a preference on what position he plays moving forward, all he wants is to play football.
"I just want an opportunity to play football again."
Orangebloods.com broke the story last week that Overstreet was one of four players dismissed from the Longhorns, due to a violation of team rules. Orangebloods.com reported Tuesday that running back Joe Bergeron also received an unconditional release and has heard from West Texas A&M University.
Orangebloods.com first reported senior safety Josh Turner, after meeting with Charlie Strong earlier this week, would remain on the team as the Longhorns get ready to start fall camp on Monday.
Details about defensive back Chevoski Collins' future plans are unknown.
