Two offers so far for Cowan

On a high school team loaded with guards, Anthony Cowan doesn't always get a chance to standout, but he was very impressive at the DMV Tip-Off Classic.

At the DMV Tip-Off Classic one of the most impressive performers was 2016 point guard Anthony Cowan. The 5-foot-11 floor general from Washington (DC) St. John's showed a complete game, and already he has two offers on the table.

St. John's dominated Upper Marlboro (Md.) Wise, and Cowan along with fellow point guard Tre Campbell were big reasons for it. Overall Cowan was pleased with the result.

"I think we did real well," explained Cowan of the win. "I think we came out with a lot of intensity. I know we lost last year in this event, so we just wanted to come out with a bang and show that we aren't playing around this year."

In terms of his overall play on the season, Cowan has been happy with his development.

"I think my game is coming around real well," said Cowan. "I am doing a better job of getting everybody involved and sharing the ball. Also I am shooting the ball well, and I think I am brining a lot of intensity to the defensive end."

Recruiting wise things are also going well for Cowan as he already holds a pair of scholarship offers.

"I have offers from Maryland and Xavier," said Cowan. "Also I have been hearing from Penn State, Cincinnati, Florida State, and a lot of other Big East and ACC schools."

The Maryland offer was a big one for Cowan, and he says it is an honor to have that as an option going forward.

"It means a lot knowing that your home team likes your game, and maybe in the future you could be able to play at home in front of family and friends," Cowan explained. "I really appreciated the offer and it humbled me a lot to get it."

Also the Xavier offer is one that Cowan is high on. Xavier has been very active in the recruitment, and Cowan says it could be a good fit.

"I love Xavier," said Cowan. "Xavier told me straight up that if you want to go pro and do great that Xavier is the best place for me because it isn't a big campus so you can always be in the gym. That is something I really like about Xavier."

For now Cowan is in no rush to make a decision, but he says he one thing above everything else will be important in deciding where he ends up.

"I want to be able to play early and go to a team where all they want to do is win," explained Cowan. "I want to be around a coach who is dedicated to winning with teammates who are totally focused on winning. Winning is just the most important thing to me."
