Former Canes linebacker Darrion Owens will reunite with Mark D’Onofrio in Houston.

Owens, who left Miami after the season, will play for his former defensive coordinator, who enters his second year with the Cougars.

The Orange Park-Oakleaf High graduate was a valuable reserve linebacker for the Hurricanes, working back into the rotation after a devastating 2015 knee injury. He will have one year of eligibility remaining.
