Bowman commits

Havelock (N.C.) wide receiver Michael Bowman became the newest member of South Carolina's 2015 recruiting class on Thursday morning when he announced his pledge during a ceremony held at his high school.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder also drew scholarship offers from East Carolina, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and Tennessee.

The three-star pass-catcher jumped onto the Gamecocks' board with an offer back in November of 2012 and USC was established as the strong early favorite. The primary contenders for Bowman were in-state programs UNC and NC State.

Bowman was recruited to USC by defensive line coach Deke Adams with involvement from wide receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr.

"It came down to two schools. Basically South Carolina over NC State because of Coach Adams and Coach Spurrier Jr. making me feel like home. I knew I could be a big player at the school," Bowman said.

The acquisition of Bowman is the latest from the Havelock program following Corey Robinson in the 2010 class and Pharoh Cooper from the class of 2013. Cooper's success at USC also weighed on Bowman's mind.

"They made him a big player, made him bigtime. Being a good player out there, he can go somewhere," Bowman said. MORE CONTENT FROM GAMECOCKCENTRAL.COM
