Eight On List For Maryland Big Man

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA -- Will Bowers, a talented 6-11, 225 center from Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, MD, told us this past weekend at the Southern Invitational that he has a list of eight schools and all have offered him a scholarship.
"Stanford, Maryland, Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Florida State and St. Joe's are the schools I am considering," Bowers told us after he competed for the Baltimore Select. "I don't have a leader. I am just doing as much research as I can on each of the schools."
Bowers told us he has not set up any unofficial visits. "I would like to take some during the summer if I get the chance," he said. "I haven't done so yet. But if I get the chance I will take some."
Some of these schools recruiting Bowers is also considering below the top eight are Texas, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Wake Forest, Providence and Villanova.
Bowers is a hard worker who values team performance well above individual marks. Spalding ended the year with a 29-7 record record and fourth place in the final Baltimore Sun poll. Bowers averaged 11.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.9 blocks, 1.0 assists and 0.5 steals per game.
Bowers, who was named to the Sun's All-Metro second team, will play with the Baltimore Select AAU team this summer and is scheduled to attend the NBA Players Association camp in Washington, DC, and the adidas ABCD camp in New Jersey.
"I want to get better physically," Bowers told us. "I am trying to get stronger. So I am working on lifting weights."
Bowers showed us he has some skill to be a good college basketball player. He appears to be good at rotating the ball out of the low post to find his guards for open looks. Bowers also runs the court hard all the time.
