Bowman Likes East Coast Schools

Brandon Bowman was the sixth man at Westchester in Los Angeles last year. He started out the summer with the goal of opening the eyes of recruiters and at the Nike All-American Camp, he did just that.

Bowman Likes East Coast Schools

Westchester High is so loaded that last year SF Brandon Bowman came off the bench as a junior. The 6-7 swingman is long and athletic and obviously has a lot of talent. At Nike Camp, he went on a 3-point barrage that had coaches scrambling to learn more about him.

Bowman was ready to excel, but his camp performance might have even surprised himself a little. "I didn't know that I was going to do that good."

New Mexico and Virginia had offered him prior to camp. Maryland, Georgetown, Tennessee and Boston College soon followed their lead. Bowman says that he's going to be on the East Coast later this month and may try to visit the Terps, Hoyas and Cavaliers.

He has an official visit to Tennessee set for Oct. 27. He'll trip to Charlottesville Oct. 20 and spend Midnight Madness at The Pit in New Mexico. All of this means that he's in no rush to decide but says that he wants a decision before the season actually starts for him.

New Mexico and Virginia are the only home visits he's set up so far and they'll be Sept. 9, the first day coaches can jump on a plane and make visits.

"Everyone seems to think they know where I am going but I actually have no idea."

It's not often you see a West Coast kid with so many eastern based schools on his list. "I guess because [the east coast programs] have been showing me the most interest and I don't think the situations are right for me in the California schools. The major west coast schools aren't after me. I think they took notice of other players on the west coast. I can't really tell you. I think these west coast schools are kind of sleeping on me."
