Are the Noles Making a Move on South Florida DT?

The Seminoles are in a heated battle with Miami for the one of the state of Florida's top defensive players. Recently, the Noles have trailed the Canes for the services of the four-star defensive tackle standout from Plantation (Fla.) where do the Noles stand now?


"Miami and Florida State are equal," Jeffery Owens said. "Florida State is coming on because their defense is playing fast. Other teams can't score on them and they fly around making big hits."

Owens has already been to two unofficial visits to Miami and he has plans to see the Gators play South Carolina play in a few weeks. He also wanted to see the Seminole play Virginia this past week but didn't make it.

"I really wanted to go see that game but I couldn't make it," the 6-foot-3 and 260 pound defensive tackle said. "I watched the game on TV and liked what I saw. I went to see Miami play Louisville play last Thursday and it was a very good atmosphere. I saw Richard Gordon there. I think he wants to be a Cane."

Owens told Scout.com that he will most likely officially visit Miami, Florida State, Oklahoma, Georgia and North Carolina State.

The South Florida State is currently leading Broward County in sacks (10).

Last year as a junior, he recorded 90 tackles, 26 tackles for loss, 15 quarterback sacks and five fumble recoveries.

Owens is an excellent student who is on track to qualify academically.
