Two new schools added to Bowe's list

LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher has been hot on the recruiting trail since the end of the regular season and he stopped by to visit one of the top receivers in the country this week, Dwayne Bowe (6-3, 212, 4.5) of Norland-Miami.

"It went alright," Bowe told Tiger Rag. "He went over the school, academics, facilities and everything. He told me how I would fit in with the offense if I went there."


Bowe has narrowed his list of choices to LSU, Miami, South Carolina and North Carolina but he has plenty of other schools that continue to call. Coaches from South Carolina and North Carolina have done a good job of recruiting him and now the Gamecocks and Tarheels have entered the picture.


He has not set up any of his official visits and will wait until his season concludes before he does so. Through the regular season Bowe had 38 catches for 500 yards and nine scores despite missing four games and has added 300 yards and three touchdowns in Norland's three playoff wins.


If Norland High School sounds familiar to Tiger fans it is because LSU offensive lineman Terrell McGill hails from the same school, along with another player LSU recruited in defensive end Kareem Brown (Miami). McGill is one of the Tigers' biggest recruiters for Bowe and one of the main reasons LSU is in the thick of things.


"We are real close," Bowe said. "We grew up together. He has been like a brother to me and a big reason I am looking at LSU."


Another reason Bowe is looking so heavily at the Tigers is because his high school coach could be moving on to the college level and possibly even at LSU.


"He is supposed to help coach the offense," Bowe said.

Sonny's View: Bowe is one of the best receivers in the country and ranked eighth at his position by I look for this to come down to a Miami/LSU battle with the hometown Hurricanes as the team to beat. However, a visit to Baton Rouge could change all of that.
