Charlotte (N.C.) Myers Park 2019 wide receiver Elijah Bowick has been a critical factor in his team’s 11-1 season heading into the second round of the 4AA state playoffs against Vance on Friday.
Bowick has broken out as a sophomore, posting 62 catches for 991 yards and 18 touchdowns.
The Clemson Insider caught up with Bowick, who has received a couple of early offers with more certain to follow, about his season and recruitment.
“I’m really proud of how far we’ve come and everything we’ve accomplished this season,” Bowick said. “I feel that I have outperformed expectations this year but am always looking to improve myself on and off the field. Overall, everything we have done this year has been done as a team. Working together is what has made us truly successful.”
Wake Forest was first to offer Bowick, and Virginia Tech followed in early November.
“It feels great honestly,” Bowick said of the offers. “I like both programs and look forward to visiting eventually.”
Bowick said North Carolina is also showing interest.
Clemson figures to at least give him a good look in the future, and he said it would mean a lot if the Tigers offered.
“I don’t know much about the school yet but it would be awesome to be offered by them,” Bowick said.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder has visited North Carolina this season and isn’t sure where he will go next.
What schools might Bowick be hoping to hear from as he moves forward?
“Since it’s so early in the process, I’m not really sure,” Bowick said. “I just look forward to seeing what’s to come in the future.”
Right now, Bowick is simply focused on getting better and helping his team win.
“Improving myself,” Bowick said, “and continue working with my team to be the best we can be.”
