Earlier this week on Tuesday, Clemson coach Danny Pearman paid a visit to an up-and-coming wide receiver from Charlotte.
Pearman, the Charlotte-area recruiter for Clemson, stopped by Myers Park High School to see 2019 receiver Elijah Bowick.
Bowick took time to talk with The Clemson Insider about Pearman’s visit.
“I enjoyed it,” Bowick said. “It mean a lot for him to come by, and it was a great feeling.”
As a sophomore, Bowick tallied 18 touchdowns and more than 1,000 yards receiving while helping his team to an 11-2 record and the third round of the Class 4AA playoffs.
“The season was outstanding,” Bowick said. “Our team played well and it was just a fantastic season.”
Wake Forest was first to offer, and Virginia Tech followed in early November. He is also receiving early interest from Clemson and North Carolina.
Clemson was intrigued by Bowick’s play this season.
“They like what they saw on film,” Bowick said of what he heard from Pearman.
Bowick likes Clemson, too.
“I don’t much about the school yet, but it would be awesome to be offered by them,” Bowick told TCI in November.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder hopes to get to Clemson in the near future and learn more about the school and program.
“I really want to see the atmosphere of the school and just how they perform on the field,” Bowick said, “and how they are before games, what players do before the games and things like that.
“I would love to visit there soon.”
