Four-star linebacker Navorro Bowman out of Suitland, Md. is planning to take his second official visit of the season this weekend to Ohio State. The 6-foot-0, 218-pounder with 4.7-second speed is looking forward to the trip and told us what he'll be looking for.
"I just want to see somewhere I can be the next four years of my life," he said. "I hope to see a great atmosphere at the game and get an idea of the program there. I don't want the coaches to say I'm good at everything because I know I need to correct some things and they need to give me guidance, I want them to help me to get better."
Virginia Tech and Penn State currently lead for the Rivals250 prospect's services. Last weekend Bowman kept a close eye on the Nittany Lions big win.

"I thought Penn State played really well and they seemed fired up," he said. "I think they are starting to come back now. They have always been known for their defense, but now the offense is starting to click too and that means they could be dangerous. I just hope they don't get ahead of themselves because they have a lot of work to do still. In the game, I think the defense played great and their middle linebacker is a stud."
How did the game affect Bowman?
"I can say the outcome affected me a lot," he said. "Right now they are on top, but I like that Penn State played hard and came out with the win. I'd say they are the leaders of all the teams right now since I've been there already and I know they have outstanding fan support, great facilities and they are known for defense and linebackers."
Even though he still plans to graduate in December, the No. 11 inside linebacker in the country hasn't scheduled a fifth official.

I've got to get it set up soon," he said. "I'm debating between Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Michigan State. I watched Michigan State play against Michigan in that rivalry game and they played hard and that comes directly from the coaches. I can tell they are coached well and disciplined."Here to view this Link.
