Name: Michael Bowman
Hometown: Wadesboro, North Carolina
High School: Anson County High School
Notes: Bowman originally inked with South Carolina over reported offers from Colorado, Oklahomas State, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech among others. He was tabbed a three-star prospect by Scout.com.
He reportedly didn't clear admissions at South Carolina and is now headed to Greenville to play for the Pirates. He brings speed, playmaking ability, and versatility with him, as he can line up at tailback, wide receiver or cornerback for East Carolina.
Scouting Report: Playing as a wingback in a veer offense, Michael Bowman could easily make the move out to a slot receiver in college and bring damage with a wide variety of packages including some handoffs. He has great acceleration and has an amazing lean into his cuts that allows him to avoid contact and maintain speed through his cuts.
Coach's Comments: "There’s a lot of talk about him at both corner and running back. Everybody has talked about him as being one of the best athletes. He can change the game with his speed, he has an outstanding vertical, and he’s a kid that has averaged about 8 yards a carry with the ball in his hands. He’s also the most confident of all three of them." -- Anson head coach Jody Grooms
