TE Drew Owens (6-3 230) of Charlotte says his top five are Clemson, USC, Arkansas, NC State, and North Carolina. "I don't really have a favorite right now," said Owens. "All of those schools are pretty close."
Owens says he has been busy with his high school team this summer limiting his time to take visits. "We're heading to Western Carolina tomorrow for a four-day camp," he said. "We've been competing in a lot of 7 on 7s. I think I'm just going to wait and go to (USC and Clemson) on my official visits."
He has moved up his timeframe for committing as well. He had initially said he wanted to commit in November, but now says, "I want to commit a little earlier than that...maybe in October." He is unsure if he will take all five of his officials but says he will definitely take one each to Clemson and USC.
"I am looking for a program with tradition and where I can get a chance to compete for a spot," said Owens. He did not name a leader.
