"For sure," Bowers said. "We're in the process of working out a date for me to get up there. But I want to for sure."
Bowers said a report from Monday that he has narrowed his list to Memphis and Florida State, "wasn't true." He will visit Memphis on Aug. 25.
"I've been talking to Louisville a lot," he said, noting assistant coach Mike Balado has been the point man for his recruitment.
The 6-foot-7, 260-pound Bowers is one of the top JUCO players in the country and attends Chipola, Fla., Junior College.
U of L started recruiting Bowers in July when Balado saw him at the Mullen's Top 100 JUCO Camp in St. Charles, Mo. U of L coach Rick Pitino then watched Bowers the following week at a JUCO event in Atlanta.
Bowers has been compared to current U of L payer Chane Behanan, except with a little more skill, and Chipola coach Patrick Blake – a former manager at U of L for Pitino – said he "would agree with that assessment."
