Last night 2017 5 star Small Forward Brian Bowen (6’7″/195) trimmed his list to his Final 6 schools, and NC State made the cut once again.
Back on August 5th, Bowen trimmed his list to his Final 12 schools, and these are the schools that were eliminated last night: Michigan, UNLV, Kansas, Oregon, Kentucky, and Indiana. Michigan St has been thought to be the leader for quite some time, but the Wolfpack continue to remain in the hunt. We reported on September 9th that Bowen was one of the NC State coaching staff’s top 3 priorities in the 2017 class. When the new recruiting period opened that day, the whole entire NC State coaching staff was visiting him at his high school in La Porte, Indiana.
Bowen is a consensus 5 star prospect, and the #13 player in the class according to ESPN.
