Alvin Bowen, RB/FB/OLB, 6-2, 200, 4.5 Montclair HS
No offers as of yet. I have interest from Hofstra. They want me to play outside linebacker. I went out there for a visit. I have been contacted by North Carolina and a coach from Pittsburgh came out to see one of my practices.
Who are your favorites?
"I am waiting on offers but Hofstra lead. Tyrone Griner (from Montclair QB and DB) is there. He had a state record for interceptions (34 interceptions). Nafi Williams (former DL) is also there and I would really like to play with those guys."
Montclair games to date
"I am averaging 8-9 tackles a game, 2 or 3 sacks, one interceptions. On offense I have 7 touchdowns and about 700 or 800 yards rushing. Against Belleville I had 105 yards on 5 carries. Montclair is 5-2 and we have won four straight. Everyone is doing well on the team right now, the linemen are opening holes. I am expecting some good games to finish out the season. Our game against Bergen Catholic will be on Comcast this weekend. It'll be a important game for us."
Alvin has received early interest from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Miami, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Illinois, Michigan, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Maryland, Syracuse and others.
Alvin impressed with his physique and athleticism at the "seven on seven" camp at Rutgers
Derrick Harper is a good friend of Alvin since the sixth grade and there is a possibility of both of them going to the same school.
