ATH Clarence "Bo" Flowers 6-2 200 4.4 Melrose Park, Illinois (Walther Lutheran)
Bo Flowers was the talk of the Midwest during the May evaluation. Many college recruiter were so enamored with Flowers, they cancelled plans to visit other schools so they could watch Flowers play a baseball game.
The recruiters just wanted to be seen. They wanted Flowers to know that their school wanted him bad enough that they would sit through an entire baseball game even if he wasn't pitching or playing that day.
Flowers has made no bones about it. Baseball is his first love. Atlanta Braves center fielder, Andrew Jones is among Flowers hero's. Bo will have to make a decision on baseball of football come spring.
Flowers played in the prestigious area code games in California this past summer. These games are for the nations elite high school baseball players. Its almost a certainty that Flowers will be selected in the amateur baseball draft.
This hasn't stopped college football coaches from putting their best foot forward in recruiting this super talented athlete. Flowers says he's begun to set up his official visits.
"I'm going to Illinois on November 30th." Flowers said. "I'm also going to visits Arizona on December 7th. Tennessee and Miami will also get visits. I haven't decided on a fifth visit yet.
My top five schools are Illinois, Miami, Arizona, Michigan State and Tennessee. I don't have a leader."
All favorites have offered except Miami and Tennessee. Miami is recruiting Flowers for baseball as well as football.
