DL Daquan Bowers Profile
5-star defensive lineman Daquan Bowers, one of the top prospects in the country regardless of position, took his official visit to Clemson over the weekend.
"I enjoyed the visit a lot," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I would have enjoyed it a little more if we had won, but it was still great.
"The defense played well. They couldn't be stopped. The offense played okay too. The special teams had some cracks in them and that cost them the game. I am sure they will work on that the next two weeks and get that fixed." said Bowers.
How did Bowers rate his visit to Tigertown?
"I would give it a nine. The only problem was they didn't win the game. Everything else was perfect. No college could have done it better," replied Bowers.
"I really enjoyed hanging out with the players. I got to see how college life really is. I learned where to go around campus. I got to spend some time with the coaches."
Former teammate Ricky Sapp hosted Bowers during the visit.
"You know it was just like old times. We had a lot of fun along with some other players. We also hung out with Rennie Moore, Jarvis Jenkins and Marcus Gilchrist," said Bowers.
Bowers was also very impressed with his former teammate's performance Saturday night.
"Ricky played very well. I am proud of him. He is doing an excellent job in school and on the field. I think he has a chance to be better than Gaines Adams," he said.
Bowers also confirmed he plans to get a head start on his Clemson career.
"Right now I plan to graduate on January 11. I will be reporting to Clemson on the same day. I will get to practice with the team this spring. I will also get a head start on my hours and my college education," said Bowers.
The two-way standout for Bamberg-Ehrhardt has helped his team to an undefeated season so far.
"The season is going great. Right now we are 7-0. Last week we had a big win over the number two team. We are the number one team. If we win this week we will win the region. Then it is off to the playoffs and hopefully the state championship," said Bowers.
Bowers also had a message he wanted delivered to all the Clemson fans on CUTigers.com:
"There was a rumor about me decommitting from Clemson. That is not true. I have not. I am full force a Tiger. I am ready to get on the field and help the Tigers."
