With four official visits in the books, Hermitage (Richmond, VA) linebacker Andrew Bowman is getting close to closing out his recruiting process. He has one remaining official visit, and hopes to decide soon after.
“I’m going to visit UNC,” Bowman said. “I’m going to take that on the 9th [of January]. I’ll get with my parents and make my decision pretty soon, but it will be after my UNC visit.”
Bowman made his fourth official visit this weekend, going to Virginia Tech. He had previously made official visits to Tennessee, Virginia, and Purdue. This weekend’s experience appears to have been similar to the previous four.
“I’d give it an eight [out of ten],” Bowman said of his Virginia Tech visit. He was hosted by freshman tight end and former Hermitage teammate Duane Brown. “I’d say I had about the same feelings on each of my visits. I enjoyed myself at all of the places.
“This weekend, me and Duane went to the basketball game. I also watched the team practice and run drills. I talked to Vegas [Robinson] a lot, and Vince Hall and Xavier [Adibi]. They were cool.”
Bowman met with Coach Frank Beamer today, however acknowledged it was not very in-depth because Coach Beamer has an in-home visit with him tomorrow. Virginia Head Coach Al Groh has an in-home visit scheduled for Tuesday.
With only one official visit remaining, it appears the decision may be getting tough for Bowman.
“It’s a little bit tough,” Bowman said. “I’ll just have to talk with my parents and make my decision.”
One of the top players in the state of Virginia, Bowman has received scholarship offers from all five schools involved. They have all indicated to him he could compete for early playing time, but they want to “wait and see how I feel once I get there.”
Bowman is not tipping his hand at all in terms of any favorite schools or where he may be leaning. I believe it will come down to UVA and Virginia Tech in the end, and it’s really a tough call right now.
