Owens, who loves to play football and also loves to hunt wild boar, apparently had a great weekend visit, and hung out with fellow Palestine Wildcat Sam Wren, also a defensive end, according to posts to his Twitter account.
Oddly enough, Owens saw more action and more honors on offense this past season. He was a second team all-district performer at fullback his junior season and then earned first team honors while exploding for more yards and touchdowns as a senior. Owens carried 81 times for 678 yards (8.4-ypc) and six touchdowns. He also caught two touchdown passes.
On defense, where he is expected to settle as a defensive end, he had 23 tackles, six tackles for loss, and caused two fumbles.
Besides his commitment to TCU since June, he also had early offers from Texas Tech, Louisiana-Monroe and Texas State. It was his play and his athletic ability that prompted Scout to rate him a 4-star recruit. Schools have come after him aggressively late in the recruiting process.
