Daniel played the role of host for Owens and told him the facts about UF, he said.
"Brandon is a cool guy who just gave it to me straight about how good it was to be a Florida Gator," said Owens, the 6-3, 285-pound defensive tackle who is rated four stars by Scout.com .
After his unplanned swim in Lake Wauberg, Owens got a Saturday night look at The Swamp. The evening in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium was one of the highlights of the trip.
"It was a real neat experience," Jeff Owens said. "I enjoyed running out of the tunnel. Coach (Urban) Meyer and Coach (John) Hevesy are great guys."
When it came down to committing, Owens said the coaching staff gave him plenty to think about before he visits Florida State next weekend. However, although he remains committed to Georgia, he says he will take some time to think seriously about this last visit.
GATOR COUNTRY TAKE: This would be a prize steal from Georgia's commitment list, but it will take more then a dip in the lake to convince Jeff Owens that Gainesville should be his home for the next four years. If the Gators have an incredible in-home, it could mean the difference, but for now, he's Georgia's to lose.
