The summer has been a less-hectic one for Michael Bowman with his commitment to South Carolina in the books. The March 19 decision is one he’s still very pleased with despite an ACC school still after his services.
“It’s been good, just been working out, laying back and working towards playing in the SEC,” he said. “My recruitment has slowed down a little bit, but some are still trying to recruit me and stuff – especially UNC. They want me to come play with my brother (2016 wide receiver Kyran Bowman). They say me and my brother would be a good combination on the field, we could do a lot of things together and make plays.
“It’s no different, we play against each other at home and in the backyard, so it’s basically going to be the same thing. My brother is more likely to flip, because my commitment is solid. I’m not changing it.”
Ranked among the top 100 wide receivers nationally by Scout.com, Bowman also has multiple state championships to his name at Havelock (N.C.) High School. Heading south after this season will feature some familiarity, especially once Steve Spurrier’s playbook is introduced.
“I like the coaches, and because of the offense they run,” Bowman said of why he sticks with South Carolina. “We run the same spread here at Havelock, it is just fun to be in that kind of offense.”
Scout currently tabs Bowman as a three-star prospects in the class of 2015.
