"I've narrowed it down a little. There's Penn State, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, and Tennessee. That's my top five."
Asked if any other schools are in the picture, Bowman said, "Pitt and Florida. That's about it. They both offered.
"I haven't set up any official visits. I'll do that when school starts. I'll visit those (top) five. I'll take all five visits.
"My favorite is Virginia Tech, and I like Ohio State a lot too.
