Brian Bowen SF, 6’7 190
La Lumiere School
Class of 2017
Bowen can flat out play. He’s a big time scorer, he can shoot from anywhere on the court, he gets up and down the floor well. Bowen has a quick first step and plays with a tremendous amount of energy. He’s versatile, athletic, and explosive when attacking the basket. He plays with the will to win and does a really good job getting his teammates involved. His size will be beneficial on both ends of the court going into his collegiate career.
Bowen has received offers from just about all of the top collegiate basketball programs — Michigan State, Arizona, Creighton and North Carolina State. I personally would like to see Bowen as a Spartan. I believe Coach Izzo would not only prepare Bowen well for the next level but also contribute to bringing out his full potential as an overall player/student. With the exception of being the cousin of former Michigan State and NBA Star Jason Richardson, that would make a Spartan decision for Bowen that much better. Bowen has a chance to be great! He hasn’t reached his full potential as of yet. One lucky coaching staff will get their decision soon.
