Might be a good fit for the BUCK position.

Played DE last year and finished with 18 sacks I believe. Very fast and quick twitch athleticism with elite speed for an athlete in the front 7.

Can definitely see him being a great at any LB position in our system. Imo he is under rated because he has been playing at the not most ideal position in hs for his skill set. Raw tools are certainly there.

Also I have to imagine the school he is coming out of is not helping his recruitment. NOt many colleges are beating down the doors at Woodmont, but every now and then they do pump out some good athletes...I think the last one was Malik Young.

Agree that he looks to have good physical tools to work with. Quick off the ball, good speed, and nice pursuit.

By no means a projected instant impact guy...but as many have said, the raw tools are there.

Strikes me as one of those guys you get in the program, redshirt, get him in the weight and conditioning program and groom him to contribute as either a sophomore or junior.

That is what it is going to take to get this program back to where it was rollling just a few years ago.

Hey, Missouri does just fine with the 2-3* DEs and DTs they recruit. I will take raw talent that can be molded and improved in comparison to pure athleticism with no drive or change behind it.

The kid ran two sub 4.4 40's at Mondays Camp per TBS. Now that is handheld and their definitely is room for error but this kid is a top notch athlete. Look for his ranking to explode soon.

At his size if he ran 4.5-4.6, that's excellent speed for a linebacker

6'2" 220, 4.40 is off the charts......looking good for us.

USCBASEBALL1 and elcid99 is this kid as good an athlete as Brad Johnson. I know they don't play the same position but just wanted to know your opinion as their athletic similarities.

I agree.
With proper coaching and buying into the system, Bowen has the potential to be very good.

Not either of those guys but in terms of being a more complete football player I would lean towards Johnson being more complete. Johnson is better against the run. IMO, Johnson isn't as versatile as Bowen is however. Bowen can play with his hand in the dirt or standing up and makes little difference to him. Johnson is better with his hand in the dirt IMO.

thanks for the insight. really good analysis.....I'll be thrilled if we can get both of them. I feel really good about Bowen and I used to feel the same about Johnson but his recruitment has blown up and he's got a over a dozen solid offers.
