Taihland Owens


Position: Shooting Guard

Height: 6’5”

High School: Cherokee

Travel Team: Atlanta Celtics

Scholarship Offers: Xavier, Appalachian State, VCU, Georgia Tech

Scouting Report: One of the best shooters and perimeter scorers in Georgia’s 2021 class, Owens is consistently looking to score the ball and had some huge scoring outputs during the high school season. He has a very good shooting stroke and can knock down shots off the dribble and off the catch. He puts the ball on the floor well to create for himself and is also very good with both hands passing and finishing at the rim. He can also play well without the ball and find open areas to knock down shots. He has very good size with a nice frame and gets off the floor well. He is one of the best overall scorers in the Peach State in 2021 and should see his fair share of attention from college programs in the coming weeks.
