Super WR Favors UM

This super wide receiver prospect has emerged as one of the best in the state. Read on to find out what he likes most about Miami and some insight he provides on another UM prospect.

At 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, Miami (Fla.) Norland standout wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is enjoying an outstanding season, despite missing four games because of a foot injury.

"Someone landed on it about a month ago and it started to bruise and started swelling," Bowe said. "I missed some games because of it and that was tough because I wanted to be out there helping my team."

Bowe is back at full strength and his team will take on Dillard in the second round of the playoffs this Friday. In seven games, Bowe has 25 catches for 405 yards and nine touchdowns.

Bowe, who ran a 10.8 in the 100m as a junior during track season, said he's currently waiting on SAT scores to come back.

"I have a 2.6 core now and I'm just waiting to see what I get on the SAT," he said. "I took it three weeks ago and they said it takes awhile to come back."

Bowe said the recruiting process has been very bothersome at time, and that's one of the reasons why he's narrowed his list down to three.

"It's between UM, LSU, and Florida State," he said. "Those are the three I'm still looking at."

Bowe talked about each of his favorites.

LSU - "I went up there over the summer and liked what I saw," he said. "They're recruiting some of my teammates too, trying to get all of us up there together."

Florida State - "They have a great program," he said. "They produce good receivers and I think it's a good situation."

Miami - "It's like FSU. It's a great program and they're always winning. Plus, I like Coach CJ a lot."

The standout receiver, who says he spoke to Coach Johnson on Monday night, was asked about a leader.

"I like all three of them even," he said. "But I'd say UM has the edge right now because it's at home. My grandma can see me play. I'm gonna take my trips though."

Bowe talked more about the Hurricanes.

"Coach CJ said I can play early and I know it all depends if I can go in there and ball," he said. "I know I will. I know my competition. They offered me and it doesn't matter to me what they got. I'm going to go in and do my thing."

Bowe said he also saw fellow UM prospect Terrell Walden recently.

"I saw him a little while ago," he said. "He said he's going to be at UM starting in January."
