Michigan State recruiting will get one final chance to court Brian Bowen as he’s visiting East Lansing prior to his final decision.
The recruiting process for five-star small forward Brian Bowen is coming to an end and Michigan State will get one final shot to plead its case for why he should become a Spartan. According to reports, Bowen will visit Michigan State one more time before making his final decision.
For months now, the likelihood of Michigan State landing Bowen has looked bleak. In the fall, it seemed as if he was a lock to go green, but other candidates like Arizona, Creighton and Texas emerged as true threats.
However, he has remained somewhat quiet in the process and is just enjoying it. That process will likely be coming to an end in January and the Spartans will have one final shot to make their impression on him.
While he already knows everything there is to know about East Lansing and Michigan State, since he has visited dozens of times unofficially, getting to talk to Izzo about his future and what he can accomplish in the green and white will be key.
If he picks Zona, he will be choosing a program that recruits well, but often times misses out on its ultimate goals of Final Fours and titles. If he chooses Creighton, that means he will likely be going because they promised he could be the go-to guy and top scorer.
However, if he lands with the Spartans, he will be playing for a Hall of Fame coach who is no stranger to the Final Four, coming in with a great recruiting class.
Each school offers something the other can’t and that’s why he’s still weighing the pros and cons. Still, Michigan State getting his final visit is a big deal, to say the least. Bowen is ranked No. 14 overall and as the fourth-best small forward in the country, according to 247Sports.
