As a freshman, Bowers made 24 catches for 489 yards and two touchdowns. After hauling in a spectacular catch during practice at practice on Wednesday, he figured an offer from the Panthers might be on the way.

Pittsburgh recruiting coordinator/cornerbacks coach Tony Gibson, the only college coach in town that day, offered on the spot.

"It felt great because it was my first offer," Bowers told CUTigers.com on Wednesday night. "I hope that I get many more. Other than that, it was a great feeling."

Being the cousin of a former Clemson All-American, the 2014 Bowers has plenty of interest in the Tigers.

"When he went to Clemson, that kind of raised my interest. I've liked Clemson [for a while]," he said. "I went up there for a few games and he showed me around campus. It seemed like a good school."

"I liked the academic center. That was nice. I like the atmosphere and the fans. It's a very nice place. Playing on Saturdays there would be very, very fun," Bowers said.

Though the 6-foot-3, 180-pound wide receiver is years away from a decision, Bowers has several schools that have already piqued his interest.

"I really like the Oregon Ducks right now. I've been looking on the Internet, checking out their place. It seems like a pretty good school. I've been looking at Auburn. They just had Cam Newton go in the draft. He was the Heisman winner, so I've been looking over there at Auburn," he said.

"Alabama had a coach that came down here, coach [Chris] Rumph, who came from Clemson. He gave me some letters about the camp. He's showing interest. The South Carolina Gamecocks, I'm looking at them also. I'm still getting to know more schools."

Bowers has started receiving camp brochures from Oregon, Alabama and Illinois.
