2019 WR Elijah Bowick's early offers include ACC, Big Ten and SEC

Elijah Bowick had a breakout sophomore season and established himself as one of the top 2019 propsects in North Carolina. The Charlotte (N.C.) Myers Park playmaker spoke with Scout about his recruitment.

Charlotte (N.C.) Myers Park sophomore wide receiver Elijah Bowick was a nightmare for defensive backs in 2016.

Not surprisingly, the 6-foot-2, 193-pound Bowick's recruitment is gaining momentum.

"I have seven offers -- Virginia TechVirginiaSouth CarolinaDukeLouisvilleWake Forest and Wisconsin," Bowick said. 

Wisconsin was the latest offer.

"It means a lot that a school so far away has interest in me and it feels great," Bowick said. "I don't know much about them, but I've watched them on TV and they play really hard. I'm looking forward to learning more about the program.

"Hopefully, I can visit during the spring. I want to meet the coaches and players. I also want to see the campus and the environment."

According to Bowick, North Carolina and Virginia Tech are recruiting him hardest, and he gave a thought on each.

North Carolina: "That's the first school I visited and it's a big in-state program," Bowick said. "I went to their game against Georgia Tech and it was unbelievable. I enjoyed watching them warmup before the game and was impressed with how they stayed focused. The crowd and atmosphere was also great.

"(Wide receivers) coach (Gunter) Brewer is recruiting me and he's a great guy. He's a great coach and he's coached some great receivers through the years. I stay in contact with him and I'm going to try to get up there for a basketball game soon, so we can talk more, and I can get to know the staff better."

Virginia Tech: "They're just a great team and they never quit. I watched their bowl game and was impressed with their will to win and their composure. I'm actually visiting on Jan. 15. I'm looking forward to meeting all the coaches and learning more about the academics. It should be exciting.

"(Wide receivers) coach (Holmon) Wiggins is recruiting me and he always stays in contact and tells me to keep working hard. He's told me that he really wants to coach me. I've also spoken with coach (Justin) Fuente and that meant a lot."

Along with the aforementioned visits, Bowick said he hopes to take trips to Clemson, Wake Forest and Louisville in the near future.

Bowick finished his sophomore season with 67 catches for 1,140 yards and 19 touchdowns.
