In my opinion this is the state’s most underrated prospect is Centralia point guard D’Aaron Owens. At 5’9” his size scares some coaches away, but there is no doubt he can flat out play. Owens has a tremendous feel for the game as a distributor, but the senior can also put the ball in the hoop as well. He can score in a variety of ways particularly getting in the lane off the bounce finishing with floaters and scoop shots. Perimeter jumper has also greatly improved. His vision in the half court is a major weapon hitting cutters as well as guys cross court on a regular basis for open looks. Defensively he more than holds his own putting pressure on the ball at the top of the key. Owens is a D2 kid in my eyes and an absolute no brainer for every single D3, NAIA, and most JUCO’s in the Midwest.
