Will Bowers, the oustanding 6-11, 225 center from Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, MD, is being pursued by schools from the PAC-10 to the ACC, head coach Mike Glick told us yesterday.
"We plan on sitting down and deciding on the top seven - 10 schools next month," Glick added. "There are six coaches coming in today and that's really not atypical this spring."
Some of these schools recruiting Bowers include Stanford, Maryland, Texas, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Providence and Villanova. Earlier this past season, Bowers had told us that the top of his list started with Maryland, Notre Dame, Texas and other schools in the ACC.
Bowers is a hard worker who values team performance well above individual marks. As long as he stayed out of foul trouble, Glick generally kept him on the court this past season. 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.
