Although Sam Jowers of Atlanta (Ga.) Westminster is being recruited on both sides of the ball, the 6-foot-2, 260-pounder doesn't have a preference where he lines up.
He just wants a shot.
Right now, Jowers apparently has several programs interested, but none have yet to come forward with an offer. He's optimistic he can change that.

"You know, it's hard [waiting], but I'm going to keep pushing," Jowers said. "I know I'll get one if I keep working."
A two-year starter at Westminster, Jowers is hearing primarily from Duke, Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Rice, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. Of that group, he said the Yellow Jackets and Bulldogs have shown the most interest.
Georgia Tech projects Jowers as an offensive lineman.
"I went to a game down there last year, and I've been there to talk to [the coaches] for awhile," Jowers said. "They've been telling me when they look at my film they see a fast-moving guard. I think I can get an offer from them when I go finish their camp or maybe in the fall. They've been recruiting me pretty heavily."
Georgia, like most schools with interest, sees Jowers as a defensive tackle.
"I went to Georgia camp [recently] and after the camp was over [assistant coach Rodney Garner] said to my coach I could easily be one of the 105 guys on the team. He wants me to come on an official visit. He's going to keep on recruiting me hard, but doesn't want to offer until I pick up some offers from other schools. But he really liked me."
Next up for Jowers are trips to Clemson, Virginia and William & Mary.
