Bowman gets offer, talks shop

WADESBORO, N.C.- Anson High athlete Michael Bowman gave an exclusive interview to on Wednesday about the offer and his recruitment in general.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder received an offer from Virginia Tech this week.
"The recruiting process has been going very well," he said. "I am hearing from a lot of schools that want me to play for them."
He previously had been offered by South Carolina.
"I really like their game style," he said. "They like to pass the ball and that's what they are recruiting me as, is a wide receiver. So I really like their game style."
Another Carolina is strongly in the picture. Bowman grew up a North Carolina fan and is hoping the Tar Heels offer him on his unofficial visit this weekend.
"I'm going up there and think they will offer me," he said.
Though the Gamecocks and Tar Heels likely are recruiting him as a wide receiver, Bowman plays running back for Anson. He rushed for 1, 246 yards in 2005.
"Most people say I am very fast and that I've got the ability to make a lot of people miss."
Some schools like Bowman at cornerback.
"A lot of schools have been contacting me about playing corner, like Auburn and N.C. State," he said. "But I like offense. I like being able to change the game in one play with the ball in my hands."
Bowman will play some cornerback in addition to offense this coming season.
Bowman plans to attend the Clemson NIKE Camp May 21 and wants to make other unofficial visits to schools.
"I know (Anson head coach Jody) Grooms is planning on taking us to a bunch," he said. "I'm trying to get to as many camps as I can."
