Pac-10 Interested in DB

Brantwon Bowser, from Phoenix (Ariz.) Maryvale, at 6-0 and running a 4.5 40, has one of the best combinations of size and speed for a cornerback in the west, and the Pac-10 knows this...

Phoenix (Ariz.) Maryvale cornerback Brantwon Bowser (6-0, 175) made the trek from the desert to the coast for the Scout.com Combine a couple of weeks ago and made the most of his trip.

Bowser's 39-inch vertical was the top of all defensive backs at the Combine and among DBs only Darian Hagan had a better forty than the 4.58 Bowser ran.

"I did better than I think I had expected to," Bowser said. "There was a lot of talent there, all from California, so I wanted to show that Arizona guys can ball too."

Bowser also added a 4.35 shuttle and a 7.47 3-cone shuttle (second amongst DBs).

In recruiting, Bowser has offers from hometown Arizona State and one from San Jose State, while last week he had coaches from Cal, UCLA and USC visit the Maryvale campus. "(UCLA Assistant) Coach (Dino) Babers is recruiting me. UCLA said they like me but I need to get my grades up a little more. I'm working really hard in school to make sure that I am going to qualify easier," said Bowser.

His top schools, which he declined to narrow down, consisted of Arizona State, Arizona, Cal, UCLA, USC and Michigan.

This summer, Bowser plans to visit Arizona State, Arizona and Michigan's team camps.

He will take the SAT on June 4th.
