Jessie Bowman Profile:

Not only one of the top defensive linemen in the state, but also one of the top power lifters (315 BP, 520 SQ, 545 DL), Bowman has several schools that are showing interest.

"I am receiving letters from LSU, USM and Mississippi State," said Bowman.

While receiving letters is the first step in recruiting, one of the next steps is attending college football camps during the summer. And Bowman already has several schools in mind.

"I would like to go to LSU, Mississippi State and USM," said Bowman of the camps he would like to attend.

Although it is still very early in the recruiting process, he had no problem naming several schools that he is most interested in.

"LSU, Mississippi State, USM, Ole Miss and Miami," said Bowman.

With tremendous strength, solid speed and a great on-the-field performance his junior season, this youngster has a chance to be a significant recruit next season.
