Nittany Lions Add First Recruit of the Spring

Tre Bowman, a 1-star recruit out of Oakdale, Connecticut (via York, PA), gave his verbal commitment to Coach Ed DeChellis and the Penn State basketball program on Monday after making a visit to State College over the weekend. This will be Penn State’s first signing of the late signing period, which starts on April 14th.

“Never-Satisfed” Bowman (as he is known in the MySpace world), a 6’4 shooting guard starred at Central York High School, averaged 22 points a game his senior year and then transferred to St. Thomas More HS in Connecticut to refine his game for the college level. During his prep season, he averaged 17 points a game while leading his team to the national semifinals. Bowman will take one of the 3 scholarships the Nittany Lions had available after Chris Babb and Bill Edwards’ transfers and Andrew Ott’s graduation.

ESPN had this to say:

Bowman is a versatile player who does a number of things well but isn’t great in any particular area. He’s a good shooter with his feet set, shows good athleticism slashing to the basket and finishing, and is solid defensively.

Bowman could fill Chris Babb’s shoes as the perimeter threat on next year’s team. He should see some major minutes with only Cameron Woodyard ahead of him on the depth chart, along with Taran Buie making his way to campus next year. Hitting the weight room will be critical, as he is listed at only 185 pounds. His 50 turnovers to 26 assists his senior year show a carelessness with the ball, but with Talor Battle running the point, Bowman will have another year to work on his ball-handling skills before needing to take a role in running the offense.
