DeQuan Bowman made it official Wednesday morning by signing on the dotted line to play for Texas Tech at a small ceremony at Hutchinson in front of family and teammates.
"You only get out what you put in, I'm all in," Bowman said. "It means everything to me. This is everything I ever worked for and its just another stepping stone to my success and future! I look forward to being a part of the family and program!"
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound inside receiver and return specialst is rated as three-star prospect and ranked as the No. 41 overall junior college player in the class by Scout.com.
Here is Scout.com's evaluation of Bowman:
"Bowman's game stands apart with how thick and strong he is for a receiver in the slot. Most wideouts that play inside have the wiggle in space to elude defenders, great hands, and a nice burst in and out of cuts but aren't always big and strong enough to withstand a lot of contact. Bowman is different in that regard. He's thick in the waist and lower body allowing him to not be easy to bring down. He also has the quickness to create separation."
Bowman, who was originally from Millville (NJ), caught 50 passes for 770 yards and five touchdowns. He was also an NJCAA All-American honerable mention return specialist after tallying 383 kick return yards and anoth 189 yards and a score returning punts.
As a freshman in 2014, Bowman tallied 34 catches for 536 yards, four touchdowns, 98 rushing yards on 10 carries; 31 punt returns for 231 yards (7.5 average) and two kickoff returns for 65 yards.
Bowman was offered by the Red Raiders in April and committed in May. He was also offered by Iowa State.
As a mid-term enrolee Bowman will be able to participate in Texas Tech spring football and will have three years to play two seasons.
