Offers came rolling in for Charlotte (N.C.) Myers Park wide receiver Elijah Bowick after his breakout sophomore season in 2016, when he caught 67 passes for 1,190 yards and 19 touchdowns, both school records.
Clemson is among the programs showing interest in the class of 2019 standout. Area recruiter Danny Pearman invited him to attend the Dabo Swinney Camp in June, and he made the trip to showcase his big-play talent.
“The camp was good,” Bowick said, “and being around for the one day, I took some things out of it like how to break off a couple routes and sideline-catching.”
Bowick (6-1, 190) now owns offers from Duke, Louisville, Maryland, N.C. State, South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Wisconsin.
Clemson is one of several schools he is looking to visit on game days this fall.
“I do want to watch games at Clemson, UNC, South Carolina and a couple of others,” he said.
Bowick has seen what the atmosphere in Death Valley is like on TV but wants to experience it in person.
“The Valley is beautiful,” he said, “and just a very great atmosphere.”
Bowick likes the overall environment at Clemson, as well, and hopes to see an offer from the Tigers come his way in the future.
“It would mean a lot,” he said. “The campus is great, and a lot of great people.”
