Visit Gauntlet

National Recruiting Editor

"After I take my visits I'll start to narrow it down and rank all these schools," Jameel Owens said. "I'm not even sure I'm going to take my fifth visit, but if I do it'll be to either Tennessee or Missouri. I need to find a place where I can see myself playing and living for the next four to five years." Owens used to have LSU on his top five list. "They just stopped calling and stuff..."

Jameel Owens, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound, four-star wide receiver from Muskogee, Okla., still denies a leader but favors Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Florida, Tennessee and Missouri.

Owens, Scout.com's No. 12 wide receiver, has already visited Oklahoma State officially on Oct. 20. "It was a good trip," Owens said. "I didn't really know a lot about them and I liked what I saw. They are an up-and-coming team and are only a few top recruits away from being a regular top 25 team. They are investing a lot into the football program and upgrading their facilities and are serious about being a top program."

Next up for Owens is an official visit to Texas Tech on Dec. 1. Then he travels back to Oklahoma to visit the Sooners on Dec. 8. "Oklahoma is doing pretty good," he said. "They are doing what they are supposed to do and are beating the teams they are supposed to be beating. They had a loss to Colorado earlier, but otherwise they are rolling the way they do every year."

On Dec. 15 Owens heads south for an official visit to Florida. "It's a little far away from home, but it's a great program," he said. "They are always producing top wide receivers and it's just gonna depend on how comfortable I am over there. My mom wants me to stay close to home, but I'm gonna go wherever I feel best."

Owens used to have LSU on his top five list, but says he hasn't been hearing much from the Tigers recently. "I'm not sure what happened," he said. "They just stopped calling and stuff.

"After I take my visits I'll start to narrow it down and rank all these schools," he said. "I'm not even sure I'm going to take my fifth visit, but if I do it'll be to either Tennessee or Missouri.

"I need to find a place where I can see myself playing and living for the next four to five years," Owens said.

Muskogee High School has an 8-3 record and is in the second round of the playoffs. Owens has over 50 receptions for 900 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He reports a 2.5 core GPA and a 22 ACT.
