Weighing the options
Manor High School's Tyrone Owens was offered by Texas State earlier this year and it's easy to understand why. His balance and explosiveness makes Owens a threat every time he gets the ball. Owens has offers from Memphis, New Mexico State and Texas State but is still hoping for an offer from Baylor and has shown interest in a lot of programs. The feeling is mutual. "I've just been talking to coaches," Owens said. "I've only visited Baylor. I'm just waiting and being patient. My coaches tell me to be patient and to just keep doing well." Owens was a first team All District running back this pas season following a second team All District honor his sophomore campaign. The speedster made third team all state in 2012. He runs a 4.4 40 and has absolutely no timetable or pressure to make a decision anytime soon but could be the next explosive back to be a Bobcat, after Jamel James committed to Texas State as part of the Bobcats' 2013 class.
