Notes: Garner (NC) linebacker Reggie Bowens may have been the most impressive performer at the Snow Hill Shrine Bowl Combine.

He looked outstanding in drills, and at 6-2, 214 pounds, Bowens logged a blistering 4.42-second 40-yard dash, 30.9-inch vertical jump and 18 reps on the bench press.

"I was happy with my 40," said Bowens. "The fastest I've ran at school was a 4.38 but consistently I am around a 4.45."

Last year he played tailback and linebacker for Garner, and he is projected to play linebacker on the next level. Bowens has already seen his recruitment take off.

"I'm hearing from Florida, South Carolina, East Carolina, NC State, North Carolina, and Clemson," he stated. "South Carolina, ECU, North Carolina, and Clemson have offered me a scholarship."

Bowens discussed the four programs that have offered him a scholarship with Inside ECU Sports.

East Carolina: "I think it's great there by looking at the pictures. I plan on going there for their one-day camp. I want to learn more about ECU."

North Carolina: "They have a lot of high school talent. Everytime I go up there I can see that."

South Carolina: "I really like everything they have to offer. Chris [Culliver] tries all the time to get me to come to South Carolina. It would be nice, but I would like to follow my own path too."

Clemson: "It is a very nice place. It's isolated, and I like the coaches."
