Juco WR Is #24

This JUCO wide out, was told he would be the last commit of the class. We have the update on his commitment to Texas State.

Former Hawaii Freshman standout Kwamane Bowens has committed to play WR at Texas State for 2015 and will bring a much needed deep threat the Bobcats sorely lacked in 2014. Bowens told us that he would be the last commit of the class and both sides seem enthusiastic about his decision Sunday morning.

"Coach (Jeff) Conway gave me a general 'be on the lookout' and this morning (Sunday) I sat down with the head man to discuss the offer. I then sat down with my sister and my family and they all gave me good feed back. Coach (Dennis) Franchione asked if I wanted to commit, said this would be his last offer, and they only wanted it to be for someone who without a doubt wanted to be there. Of course I said yes," said Bowens.

Kwamane's host was Brice Gunter, and he would sit down for dinner with On-Campus Recruiting Assistant Jake Langi during his visit. He would end up choosing the Bobcats over North Dakota and several D2 offers.

"It really felt like the right thing for me. The way I was greeted by the coaches and the players it felt like an instant connection. It was really that gut feeling that this place felt right and I can strive and excel at Texas State. I played high school football with one of Coach Langi's nephews, Andrew Motuapuaka who now plays linebacker for Virginia Tech. I even know some of his other relatives from my time at Hawaii. We had a great connection because he has been watching me from afar for a long time," said Bowens about his visit.

Bowens plans to show up on campus this summer, and will have three years left to play three seasons. Texas State has snagged themselves a proven player at the D1 level with nice size at 6'1" 203lbs, plenty of speed to burn having clocked as fast as a 4.4., and is only going to be a sophomore.
