Scout Spotlight: UCLA Commit Darian Owens

Aug. 28 -- What type of player and person is UCLA getting in four-star commitment Darian Owens?

Four-star athlete Darian Owens is one of the top playrs in the state of California, and you can see why in his exclusive Scout Spotlight.

Owens is a very good athlete, with good speed and agility. He actually has the ability to make an impact at either wide receiver or safety at the next level, which makes him a coveted recruit for schools across the country. Thankfully for UCLA's purposes, Owens committed to the Bruins earlier this spring and appears solid in his commitment.

At UCLA, Owens figures to get his first opportunity at wide receiver, and you can see why the Bruins like him there in his highlights. He's a well-built athlete, especially for a receiver, which means he can probably make an impact earlier in his career than some otherwise more under-developed players.

As you can see in his Spotlight, Owens also prioritizes academics, which should make him an excellent fit for UCLA both on and off the field.
