Jaden Owens is a certified baller. The 5-foot-7 baller is one of the top prospects in her class, rated No. 14 overall by espnW HoopGurlz, and averaged 16.5 points, 4.0 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 3.0 steals as a senior while attending Plano West High School in Texas.
Owens has committed to play for the UCLA basketball program.
There is no doubt that Owens has built a reputation as a vocal leader on the court, but she has also been thrust into the spotlight thanks to her appearance on the Facebook Watch reality series “Ball in the Family.” As it turns out, Owens is dating a former UCLA basketball player, the one and only LiAngelo Ball, who left the program after being arrest for stealing Louis Vuitton glasses during the team’s trip to China.
But all in all, Owens is hoping to forge her own path.
“I’m not super into social media,” Owens said, via espnW. “I have a certain stage, and I want to use that to uplift people. I’m a true God believer. I’m not all in it for myself. I want to impact other people in a positive way. People say to me, ‘Oh, my gosh, you are famous!’ But I feel like a normal person. We are all the same people — however you use your 24 hours is how you use it, and I just want to live my life to the fullest.”
