Owens Sets Date For Announcement

Three-star prospect LaDarius Owens is set to make his announcement at the end of July.

Bessemer, Ala.—Linebacker prospect LaDarius Owens of Jess Lanier High School in Birmingham has set a date for the announcement of his commitment. He will let his decision be known on Friday, July 31.

"Next Friday I'll be ready to decide," Owens said.

Owens has maintained over the course of the summer that Auburn is his leader, but the 6-3, 225 prospect is also looking into Alabama, Tennessee, Florida State, LSU, Clemson and Mississippi State. Owens attended both Auburn and Alabama camps this past weekend.

Following the Alabama camp on Sunday, Owens was asked in a Scout.com interview if Auburn was still his leader. "That's a real tough question right now," he said. "I am not sure about that. I am just going to have to sit down and think about everything. I am going to look at a couple more schools and just pray about it."

Owens had 92 tackles and 18 sacks as a defensive end during his junior season, but is expected to play outside linebacker as a senior and in college.
