Arizona, Arizona State, Florida, Marshall, Miami, N.C. State, Pittsburgh and Tennessee have offered.

He's still waiting to see if Clemson will come through with one. That could happen next month at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

"When I went up there last year, I guess I didn't show them enough. When I got up there this year, I'm going to come out there explosive and show them what I can do," Bowers said.

The cousin of former Clemson defensive end DaQuan Bowers, the younger Bowers is not dead set on continuing a family pipeline to the school.

"Quan, he talks to me. He told me about the school. He said it's a nice place to be, but he hasn't really tried to grab me and put me on it," Aggadoria said. "He said the recruiting process is going to be aggravating. He said, just because he went there, it doesn't mean I have to go there.

"He said he's pretty sure that other family members are going to want us to go there so we can start a little family tradition going on. I've got a younger brother. He might be a football player. Right now, he's a pretty big guy."

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound prospect missed his sophomore because of an ACL tear that he suffered last June. And it wasn't easy watching his teammates from the sidelines.

"Seeing that, it hurts on the sideline. You start getting that itch and just want to run on the field. It was tough," Bowers said.

Because he missed last season, Bowers is even hungrier for his junior season.

"People are expecting an explosion out of me, coming off the ACL tear. I'll give them exactly what they're looking for," he said.

His goals for 2012 are simple.

"Catch the ball, score touchdowns and win a championship," Bowers said.
