Artie Bowers, a high scoring 6-3 off guard from St. Benedict's H.S. in Newark, N.J., told us he is in no rush to make a decision.
"I am interested in George Washington, UMASS, Richmond, Penn State, Florida State, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Rutgers, DePaul, East Carolina, and Marquette," Bowers said. "They have all offered a scholarship."
Wake Forest had been heavily in the mix with Bowers the Demon Deacons snapped up instate off guard prospect Jeremy Ingram. "I have already visited Rutgers," Bowers said. "I enjoyed the visit. I had a chance to really see the campus and talk to the coaches. I learned a lot about the school that I didn't know before."
Bowers told us this from the Five Star camp this week in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Bowers is one of the better pure scorers in the Class of 2003. Bowers played very well over the last couple of weeks in July.
