One of the main reasons
Demarcus Bowman Chuna Clemson was his grandfather. His grandfather’s recent passing meant that Bowman would no longer feel comfortable in Tiger Town.
The former 5-star prospect entered the NCAA’s transfer portal on Thursday, shocking many in the program who hoped speedster Clemson would revive the thoughts of the legendary CJ Spiller.
However, Bowman informed Clemson coaches of his transfer intentions this week.
Bowman told TigerNet, “I only came to Clemson, so my mother’s father could see me playing.” “He lived in Atlanta, but he passed away and it hurt me a lot. He was my closest family to me and I just didn’t feel comfortable. I just wanted to go to a school close to home.”
A month later, Bowman’s father’s father also passed away.
“I started feeling uncomfortable,” Bowman said. “It was uncomfortable to be so far from home. So I really just wanted to be close to home.”
For Clemson, Bowman wanted to thank the Tigers for everything.
“Clemson is a very spectacular show,” Bowman told TigerNet. “They have great coaches and academics and it’s really the most perfect place. It just wasn’t a fit for me, though.”
Florida is possibly the lead for Bowman’s services and may be able to play soon next season. The Gators chased Bowman a lot and many thought Florida was committed to Clemson in May of 2019. Lakeland is just two hours from Gainesville.
Bowman totaled nine carries for 32 yards in the first two games of the season. He was rated high as the No. 2 running back in the Class of 2020 out of Lakeland High School (Fla.).
He averaged 11.4-yards per carry and ran for 5,081 yards, including 71 touchdowns, during his HS career.
For this season and beyond, Travis Etienne A senior and expected to be a pro in 2021, a waiver is also available if the current junior wanted Lin-jay dixon, Sophistication Michelle Dukes And Chez Melusi, New man Kobe Paes And redshirt senior Darien Rencher. Grayson (Ga.) Phil Mafia and Weddingon (NC) Will Shipley commit to the 2021 class at RB.
head coach Buried swine Bowman was compared to Spiller after spring practice.
“She is. That is another version of Spiller, ”said Swine. “It’s very high praise. He goes a long way from that, but as far as just high school tape and explosiveness and track speed – legitimate track speed – the ability to catch a football … every time he touches it. Is, he can literally go the distance. Can return (on special teams) and those kinds of things. I think there are a lot of similarities between the two coming out of high school. He’s probably a little bit thicker than C.J. Is, but he’s got that type of explosiveness, and it’s easy to come out of the system he’s playing. “
