Darian Owens was special at a recent camp and that does not surprise DB Guru 7on7 coach Tony Perry one bit.
Perry, who has coached Fresno players for years, said Owens could be special and the 2016 prospect is already seeing his recruitment pick up.
"I was telling some people Darian is going to be one of the biggest recruits in the country," Perry said. "He has it all.
"He can run, he can jump, he has some stuff. We train him every week so he's getting his feet and hips really good. When he comes out next year during the season he's going to be one of the top guys."
Owens is a 6-foot-2, 188-pound athlete from Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West who can play receiver or safety - and it sounds like it will be his choice.
The 2016 recruit does not have a preference at this point and the colleges recruiting him seem to like him on both sides of the ball. His athleticism is off the charts and that's only one thing that makes him such an attractive prospect.
"He's an athlete because he can play safety, too," Perry said. "Everybody is going to have to wait for his stuff to come out in the end because he can play both. He does both in high school and he does it well so he'll have a choice because he has size and he can run.
"It will be kind of what he wants to do. He likes both right now. He likes offense and defense and he told me whatever opportunity is best for him he's going to do."
As has been so often with Fresno recruits in recent years, Oklahoma was the first team to offer him and the Sooners have definitely grabbed Owens' attention.
USC and Cal are also in the mix early but Perry said he's certain Oklahoma has offered. Many other programs are expected to poke around once word on Owens gets out.
"I know Oklahoma has offered for real," Perry said. "Other schools are interested but Oklahoma has definitely offered him."
