Adrian Bowie has been one of the driving forces of Triple Threat's terrific march through April's busy evaluation period. The 6-foot-1 combo guard from Montrose Christian is hoping his steady play opens the eyes of the college coaches.
"We've been playing well, just trying to win as many games as we can," Bowie said.
So far, so good. Bowie and his Triple Threat mates won the Charlie Weber Invitational two weeks ago and finished second to the D1 Greyhounds last weekend at the King James Shooting Stars Classic.
The lefty is a strong finisher around the rim and gets the majority of his points from drives to the cup. Defensively, he is his team's top stopper. Still a bit of a 'tweener in the backcourt, Bowie is hoping to show that he can play at the highest level possible.
"Well this is very important to me because I'm going into my senior year," Bowie said. "I want to get the schools looking at me that I like so I can make a good impression."
Maryland (offer), Florida, Michigan, Texas and Florida State are all interested, he said.
Bowie has been to the Maryland and Florida State campuses while on the AAU trail. He's been to a number of Maryland games as well. Bowie said location, particularly Maryland's location, could play a part in his decision.
"It's going to give a little bit of weight because I've lived there all my life and I have family all over there," Bowie said.
"I'll probably decide by early September, before the season."
