A former defensive lineman, Alabama commitment Chris Owens is making his mark on offense

Alabama looks for position versatility more times than not in the recruiting process, a theory realized in four-star Texan commitment Chris Owens.

A positive attitude combined with a sense of humor can go a long way. 

As many current Alabama recruits have attested, four-star Arlington (Tex.) Lamar star and Crimson Tide commitment embodies each and it has helped him become one of America's top football recruits. He has that on-off "switch" once he's in between the lines.

Owens is still learning, but his open mind amid the transition from defensive line to offense over the last year and a half has been so successful he's now considered a top 10 interior offensive lineman nationally and the No. 104 overall prospect in the class of 2016. 

Committing to Alabama in April, the four-star has remained rock solid to the program both privately and publicly.
