  • Brian Bowen Closing In On College Decision

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Brian Bowen, the 6-foot-7 small forward from La Lumiere (IN), is closing in on a college decision.

    Bowen is set to visit Texas Nov. 25-27 and will likely decide soon thereafter.

    He’s also considering Michigan State, Arizona, N.C. State and Creighton. Arizona head coach Sean Miller was in to see Bowen on Wednesday.

    “We’re going to sit down and talk after that [Texas visit],” Brian Bowen Sr. said by phone. “He’ll start narrowing down his schools. Wherever you want to go, if you want that spot to still be open. He has great choices.”

    He added that a decision will likely come “probably by the middle of December, maybe even earlier I don’t know. I’m not going to push him but the way things are going I’m almost certain it will be in December so he can get on with his season so he doesn’t have to worry about it. He can just relax and worry about La Lumiere basketball.”

    Michigan State has long been considered the favorite in part because Bowen is cousins with former Spartans standout Jason Richardson.
