NC State is still heavily involved in recruiting 2017 5 star wing Brian Bowen. In late September, Bowen listed the Pack in his final 6, and today he is on campus to visit with Gottfried and company.
Bowen is from Michigan and most experts see Michigan State as a likely landing spot, but NC State is definitely making their case by bringing in tons of top tier talent that would help surround him next season.
Talent wise, Bowen is the type of kid that everyone wants. He’s 6’7, moves like a guard, shoots like a guard, and has great instincts in all aspects of the game. Think Brandon Ingram with a more aggressive mentality. Bowen may very well end taller than he is currently listed. He has grown 2 inches since 8th grade and scouts believe he’s not done. This is certainly a situation to watch. We’ll keep you updated on his visit as news becomes available.
