LaDarius Owens scheduling visits
"We had a tough one last week," said LaDarius Owens. "We had them down 17-13 late in the game. They caught us on a busted coverage. I had seven or eight tackles in the game with two sacks. I had around 80 tackles and 20.5 sacks this year. "The season was fun. I enjoyed it. I was frustrated at the beginning with all the double teams and teams scheming against me. It helped me get better though. I am glad we made it as far as we did, and we played very well against Hoover." Owens will now take time to focus on recruiting. "I am supposed to take my official visit to Kentucky December 5," he said. "I may decide to take my official visit to Auburn next week for the Iron Bowl. I haven't decided yet. "I am also going to take visits to LSU and Tennessee. Besides Auburn I would say LSU and Tennessee are coming at me the hardest. Those are really the only schools recruiting me right now." Owens gave more insight of the out-of-state programs garnering his attention. Kentucky: "I have a good relationship with coach Thurmond. He wants me to give them a look. He has me coming up there for a basketball game. I am looking forward to checking them out." LSU: "I really like coach John Chavis. We talk a lot. He tells me how they would use me and talks about the different blitz packages. He has coached a lot of great players. I am very interested in LSU and keeping them in my mind." Tennessee: "I have a good relationship with coach Thompson. I have been up there about two or three times. I like the energy, coaches and fans. It's different than most places. They have a lot of young players making an impact up there." Owens remains confident about his decision to the Auburn Tigers. "My commitment to Auburn is still pretty firm," he said. "I have faith in our recruiting class. We have real confidence in our coaching staff. We have the potential to have a top five class. I think we will be able to do some great things there. My commitment is still intact."
