Hermitage (VA) linebacker Andrew Bowman recently set up his first official visit. He knows of three more schools he would like to visit, however has already set up one to Virginia Tech for the month of December.
One of the state’s top prospects, Bowman has received eight scholarship offers from Division I-A programs, including Virginia Tech, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Clemson, Purdue, Duke, and East Carolina. The University of Richmond, who is I-AA has also offered.
“I’ve set up one official visit, and that’s with Virginia Tech,” said Bowman. “That’s for the first or second week of December. I know I want to go to Tennessee and Purdue. I’ll visit UVA too. I’m still undecided on the dates though.”
As far as unofficial visits go, Bowman mentioned he will visit “Virginia Tech on November 1st, maybe Virginia for the game against Wake Forest [on September 27th], and maybe UNC for the Virginia game.”
While the Hokies are the first school to set up an official visit, Bowman still claims no leaders.
“I’m going to keep it tight to myself,” said Bowman of any possible favorites. “There are still a lot of things I am considering. I’m still pretty much the same – I don’t have any favorites right now.”
Bowman is keeping an eye on how each school’s season goes, however admits that will not play a big part in his decision making. He is primarily concerned with his comfort level with each school.
“I won’t decide based on how a season goes,” said Bowman. “It’s more how I feel on the visits I take that’ll be a big part of my decision.”
In two games of the 2003 season, Bowman is showing why he is one of the top talents in the state. He is averaging over 10 tackles per game and has been a big factor in two shutout victories (27-0 and 52-0) for Hermitage. Bowman hopes to keep the shutout streak alive when Hermitage takes on Henrico this Friday.
