Georgia Tech senior defensive lineman Antwan Owens is officially moving on from The Flats as he announced that he would be transferring away from the program and be using his final season of eligibility elsewhere.
Georgia Tech will be without defensive lineman Antwan Owens in 2021 as the senior announced on Twitter on Thursday that he would be transferring away from the football program as a grad transfer and will look to finish his career elsewhere. Owens was originally recruited to The Flats by Paul Johnson as part of the 2017 recruiting class. The former three-star recruit was originally a UCF commitment before ultimately ended up choosing to play his football on The Flats.
The Tallahassee, Florida native finished the 2020 season for the Yellow Jackets, playing in just five games and recording five total tackles, a huge drop off from his 21 total tackles that he recorded in both the 2018 and 2019 seasons. His best performances this past season were against Pitt and Clemson when he had three total tackles per game.
Owens career at Tech probably did not go as he imagined struggling with consistency on the field at times while also having to battle through injuries and coaching changes. After playing in 21 games in first two seasons on The Flats, Owens played in just 13 over the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
In terms of his next destination, Owens will see a majority of his incoming interest coming from Group of Five programs but he may receive some Power Five interest as well. Programs that have started following him on Twitter since entering the transfer portal include; Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, LA Tech, Old Dominion, Northwestern, Rutgers UCF, UNLV, Wake Forest, and Western Kentucky.
