In the class of 2013, point guards are already at a premium. Saturday night, one came off the board when D.J. Bowles made his pick.
A six-foot tall point guard from Cleveland (Tenn.) High, Bowles was on an unofficial visit to Central Florida this weekend and decided he'd seen enough.
Per his summer coach Reggie Tucker, Bowles pulled the trigger for Donnie Jones crew late Saturday night after taking in the Knights 71-3 home win over UAB.
"He had a great visit to UCF over the weekend," Tucker told Rivals.com. "He really felt like it could be his home for his college career and that he could really blossom with Coach Jones and his staff."
Bowles is an athletic floor general who can get to the rim and score. He sees the floor in transition and is a good spot-up jump shooter as well.
"I really think it's a good fit for him," said Tucker. "I think they are getting a really good point guard who is underrated. They know that, Coach Jones has been out there recruiting for a while and really thinks he can help them be successful at UCF."
The Knights first commitment from the class of 2013, Bowles is currently rated as a three-star prospect.
