5-star RB decommits from Louisville; Interested in UGA, OSU, and Texas A&M

Louisville lost the commitment of five-star running back Rueben Owens today.

Statement from Owens via Twitter

This is what you should know about the situation:

When he made his commitment to the Cards back in June, Owens was the No. 23 ranked recruit in the entire class of 2023.
Even after Louisville HC Scott Satterfield accepted the Cincinnati job earlier this week, the El Campo, Texas, native said he will be waiting to hear whether running backs coach De’Rail Sims would return to he program, later finding out and stating, “Coach Sims called me today and said he won’t be at Louisville anymore.”

When he committed to the University of Louisville, 247Sports ranked Owens as the second-highest prospect the Cardinals had landed in the modern era.

Owens initially committed to Texas in February 2021, but reopened his process four months later in order to sign with Louisville.

Owens told the Athletic,

“I was just like … a new staff, I don’t know them,” Owens told The Athletic. “So I was like, ‘I’m gonna decommit.”’

Owens indicated via social media that he would choose his new location tonight at 8 p.m., hours after his decommitment. (Central Time)

“I know I would be interested in (Texas) A&M, Georgia and Ohio State,” he said.
