Owens Commits!

Auburn has picked up a commitment from the number three player in the state, LaDarius Owens! Owens was recently rated number 98 in the Rivals 100 until dropping out of the top 100 last week. LaDarius Owens is the number 3 player in the state of Alabama and the number 7 outside linebacker in the country.

Owens had offers from most colleges and chose the Tigers over Alabama, Tennessee and LSU, among others. Owens' uncle, James, was Auburn's first ever black scholarship player. He is Auburn's 16th commitment for 2010 and tops off an amazing linebacker class that includes Jake Holland, Jawara White and Jessel Curry.

Owens is a four star on Rivals and Scout, ranked the number 20 OLB by Scout. He is a four star and rated 80/100 by ESPN.com and in the ESPNU 150. He is rated the second best player in the state by the Birmingham News.

Owens reports a 2.8 GPA and a 20 on the ACT.

  5. I heard that victor beasley was at the La. Tech/ Auburn game also. Is there any way that he might sway from Clemson back to Auburn. I would love to see this tiger wear orange/blue.

  6. I wonder what's going on with Beasley. I heard recently that he never had a commitable offer from us. I would love to have him as well just because he is legacy and looks like a solid athlete.

  7. Beasley is committed to Clemson. I would however like to see us get 1 more LB and 3-4 more OL.

  9. I would like to point out what a fine job Mr. Tommy Thigpen is doing. As an UNC Alum and AU fan at heart (lived in AL till I was 6, both parents went to AU) glad to see he is pulling his weight.

  10. Thigpen is kicking butt. He has 7 of 16 commits. I bet he is the next AU coach that Mac Brown steals.
