Bowens, an honorable mention All-Met selection this fall, pledged to the Tigers’ program after taking an official visit on the weekend of Jan. 18-19. Bowens had picked up a flurry of Football Championship Subdivision offers this fall, and was considering Florida A&M, Coastal Carolina and Eastern Kentucky, among others.
“It just felt like a good fit for me, and where I wanted to spend my college life at,” Bowens said, adding that he didn’t officially visit any other campus.
Bowens said Sunday that he will enroll at Towson for the summer semester, and will redshirt. He also plans to play defensive end at the school. Bowens posted 19 sacks as a senior, and also caught seven touchdowns as one of the MAC’s best wide receivers — making him a recruiting target for some schools at tight end. He becomes the second standout defensive player at Maret to earn a football scholarship in as many years — former Frog Sean Davis signed with Maryland last winter after a stellar senior season at the school.
“It gets a lot of weight off my shoulders,” said Bowens, who will officially sign on Feb. 6 at Maret.
