Personal Life

Rueben Owens is one of the nation’s premier running backs and has the recognition to back that up. Owens was named MaxPreps’ 2021 National Junior of the Year after rushing for 2,989 yards and 46 touchdowns. With those numbers, it’s no surprise he gets lofty comparisons to some of the best in the game. “My game has four great running backs in it,” he told Sportscasting.com. “The catching ability of Alvin Kamara, the vision and making people miss like Barry Sanders, yards after the catch and balance plus power of Walter Payton, and the quickness and big-play ability of Reggie Bush.” He lists his hobbies as riding horses, fishing and “just being a country boy.” He plans on majoring in kinesiology or business management.

2021 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 25
We see many similarities between Rueben Owens and Travis Etienne at the same stage. They have similar size, were both extremely against lower level competition, ran similar track times and have the versatility to threaten defenses out of the backfield. Owens is further along as a pass catcher at the same stage.
