The 6-4 center redshirted this past season after a case of Mononucleosis cost her the first few months of her sophomore season. She played in 16 games as a freshman while averaging 1.5 points and 1.3 rebounds per contest.

Owens was a five-star recruit ranked 34th overall by ESPN in the Class of 2018 as a senior at Niskayuna High School in New York. She was also a McDonald’s All-American Game nominee.

Here’s what ESPN had to say about Owens as a recruit:

Strong, physical low-post performer with interior footwork, powers to rim with efficiency; mobile in transition; emerging face up attack; high motor effort on glass; among the elite post prospects in the class of 2018.

In addition, ESPN ranked Owens as the 16th-best sit-out transfer this year.

Owens must now sit out next season unless granted a waiver for immediate eligibility. She becomes the third transfer to pick UK this offseason, joining point guard Jazmine Massengill (Tennessee) and shooting guard Robyn Benton (Auburn).

Coach Mitchell is finally getting some players with some size. That's the only way to compete with south Carolina and the bigger schools.

Am I forgetting something or is this article wrong?? It says she redshirted last season after an illness. Doesn't that make her eligible to play right away. Surely that couldn't be a mistake??? Maybe I can't read and comprehend at my old age. [Confused]

Lets hope she is granted a immediate waiver to play immediately.
