Hermitage linebacker Andrew Bowman knows which five schools he would like to make official visits to, and three of those schools currently stand out as his favorites.

Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Tennessee are Bowman’s top three. Purdue and North Carolina remain under consideration.

“Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Tennessee are my top three,” said Bowman. “UNC and Purdue are still in the picture and still high up there. I guess you could say the reasons I like those three the best are the same for each of them. I’m comfortable with all of the coaches. I feel like I can talk to them all about anything.”

Bowman has set up official visits to Virginia for the weekend of November 29th and Virginia Tech for the weekend of December 12th. He went to Virginia’s game versus Florida State and will make an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech for the Miami (FL) game. Bowman’s trip to Blacksburg will be his first for an actual game. He has been to Virginia for the Wake Forest game earlier this year.

“It was a good game,” said Bowman of the UVA versus Florida State contest. “I enjoyed myself. Virginia should have won, but it was still good. I’m going to go to the Virginia Tech versus Miami game next.”

Bowman wants to make all of his official visits before announcing his decision. He is “staying focused” on his season right now before he starts really thinking about where he will end up next season.

At 6-1, 230 pounds, Bowman says most schools are looking at him to play inside linebacker, or over-the-tackle.


Company at the game

Bowman went to the UVA/FSU game with several Hermitage teammates, including juniors Jeffrey Fitzgerald and Jameel Sewell. Fitzgerald is a 6-5, 250 pound tight end/defensive end prospect while Sewell is a 6-3, 200 pound dual-threat quarterback/defensive back.

Bowman says they are getting some early attention from both Virginia and Virginia Tech.

“Jeff Fitzgerald is a big, big player,” said Bowman. “He’s the one who takes away most of my tackles. Jameel can run and pass. He played for our junior varsity last year and is doing really good this year.”

Hermitage is 6-0 on the season. Last Friday, the Panthers defeated Thomas Jefferson
