The Florida athlete started at corner, played some wide receiver, and was a strong punter for Coach Sullivan in 2009 before the age rule took effect causing Owens to end his season a few weeks early.
The senior now helps prepare his teammates for games by running the scout team and doing whatever else he can to make them better. He is still a part of the program and he will be until he gets to the University of Georgia.
Owens committed to the Bulldogs over the summer and has not wavered since. He has had schools continue to recruit him, but he has not listened.
Scout was recently in Jacksonville and we spent some time with the future Dawg. Owens talked about his commitment, his season being cut short, some UGA commitments that he has gotten to know, and a lot more in this interview.
