Dalton, Ga., running back Kyric McGowan attended the Hilltoppers Junior Day on Saturday

Saturday was a busy day for WKU head coach Jeff Brohm and his staff as they welcomed a large group of prospects to The Hill for Junior Day. Among the many talented recruits on campus was Dalton, Ga., athlete Kyric McGowan.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pound McGowan, who could play running back, receiver or defensive back on the college level, spent much of the day checking out the WKU campus and football facilities and visiting with members of the Hilltoppers coaching staff.

"It was a great visit," he told WKU Insider. "The facilities were amazing. The people and coaches stood out most to me. Great people on campus and the coaches showed lots of love."

During his time with the Toppers coaches, McGowan quickly learned that he is among the top prospects, with multiple coaches hoping to utilize his abilities.

"What coaches loved most about me is my versatility," he said. "They say I'm a very good balanced runner that can also play a big part in there pass game. Coach Barclay wants me really bad at RB but coach Ellis wants me just as much at receiver. I had a great talk with Coach Brohm and got to watch some film with Coach Barclay and that went well."

WKU extended an offer to McGowan during his time in Bowling Green, upping his scholarship list to nine.  Central Michigan, Middle Tennessee, Toledo and Georgia Southern are among his additional offers.

"It's been unreal," he said of the recruiting process. "I use to dream of going on visits and having schools after me. It gets busy at times but I've figured out you just have to stay humble."
