All-Conference corner and return specialist...Best suited for special teams role initially, having racked up seven return touchdowns over his career...Last year as a senior, Owusu-Ansah returned three punts and two kicks for scores...Among the chief concerns is the competition level he faced at Division II Indiana (PA)...Also played through a shoulder injury last season by wearing a harness...At 6-0, 207 pounds, he also lined up at safety and some teams view him as a potential fit at that position...At corner, he burst onto the scene in 2008 with eight interceptions and 10 pass breakups...As a result, Owusu-Ansah wasn't tested very often last season and finished with 27 tackles, two INTs and four pass breakups.
