WR High on UM

This talented wide receiver prospect talks about the in-home visit he had with Randy Shannon a couple weeks ago and explains why he likes the Hurricanes.

At 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Miami (Fla.) Norland standout wide receiver Dwayne Bowe recently finished an outstanding senior season that ended in a state championship.

"We said all year that we wanted to not only win Dade but we wanted to win the whole thing," Bowe said. "And we did it."

The standout wide receiver definitely played his part.

Despite missing three games due to injury, Bowe caught 60 passes for 851 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Bowe, who is awaiting test score results from his first test, is now ready to enjoy some recruiting visits.

"I'm going to Georgia on the 10th with Willie [Pope] and then I'm going to Miami, Florida State, and Louisiana [State]."

Bowe, who has scholarship offers from all four schools, said he's going to take all his visits before making a decision.

"I like the coach from Georgia," he said. "He played at UM and now he's up there. Louisiana [State] was really the first school other than UM to recruit me real hard."

Bowe has already had two in-home visits.

"Coach Shannon came by the crib and we talked," he said. "I think I can go in and do what Andre did there. They're gettin everyone and if I want to get more [rings] that's a good place to go. Also, the coach from [LSU] came by."

Bowe, who is very close friends with fellow UM recruit Ali Highsmith, said he is very high on the Hurricanes.

"They've been on me all year," he said. "A lot of people didn't know about me because last year was my first year playing. I used to be on the streets fighting all the time. Then [Norland] Coach Dunn pulled me from the halls and told me to start getting ready to play football. It's the best thing that ever happened to me. I'm all about football. Strictly football now and working on my grades. As long as I keep studying, I should be straight."
