H.S. Scouting Summary

The most explosive runner and best pass-catcher among top running backs in the 2023 cycle. Checked in around 5-foot-11, 195 pounds as a senior. Dominates mid-level competition, rushing for 7,089 yards and 101 touchdowns over his four-year high school career. Had a huge junior season, totaling nearly 3,000 rushing yards and 46 touchdowns. Extremely efficient, averaging nearly 12 yards per carry for his career. Pairs very good long-speed with a high-end initial burst. Has run sub-11.0 second marks in the 100 meters and carries that speed over to the field. Regularly pulls away from the competition. Bounces off tacklers at the high school level. Has also shown advanced ball skills as a pass catcher in the 7-on-7 setting. Looks to have wide receiver ball skills and appears to be the most natural pass catcher among blue-chip backs in the cycle. Does not have a huge frame. Will need to add mass to his lower body to optimize leg drive and durability. Can continue to improve his lateral agility as he gears down to cut at times. Older for the class, turning 19 years old in the middle of his senior season.

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.

Rueben Owens flashes high-end burst at All-American Bowl practices
Charles Power
All American Practice

Texas A&M running back signee Rueben Owens flashed eye-popping fluidity and burst in the open field throughout the week. He was extremely impressive working with the ball in his hands and as a receiver in the passing game. His ability to catch the football and make people miss in a phone booth was on full display each and every practice.

Game

Rueben Owens looks to be fully up to speed after missing some time with an injury earlier in the season. The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder had a huge game against Navasota (Texas) High on Friday, rushing for 291 yards and five touchdowns on 35 carries. Owens ripped off a number of big runs, showing strong initial burst and a considerable juice at the second level. Owens’ pace in the open field is among the best among running backs in the 2023 cycle. We also saw the top 100 prospect see time and make plays as a safety. Owens has long been one of the more productive rushers in the cycle, but his usage within the El Campo Ricebird offense doesn’t fully showcase complete skill set, as the Louisville pledge is also a refined pass catcher.
