JUCO DE Tyree Owens tours ECU

Before colleges across the country went on break for the holidays, ECU received a visit from JUCO DE Tyree Owens earlier this month. Inside ECU Sports caught up with Owens, and talked to him about the visit

Earlier this month, ECU hosted a big-time commit - Tyree Owens visited Greenville for his official visit. 

"The visit was pretty good," said Owens."I enjoyed it."

While visiting, Owens got to meet the team and see the facilities. 

"They showed me everything," said Owens. "I got to talk to the players and hang out with them. I love the coaches too."

It also turns out that ECU feels like home for Owens.

"I like ECU." said Owens. "I have a lot of family in Greenville, so it feels like home."

Owens also noted that ECU is currently in a rebuilding stage, however, he believes he can help the rebuilding process.

"I feel I can bring a pass rush that wasn't there before," said Owens. "I can stop the run and I can work all over the d-line."

Rushing the passer was something that ECU struggled with mightily this past season. The addition of Owens will certainly help boost the performance of the defensive line.
