This past weekend Clemson rolled out some of its top freshmen wideouts and showed everyone why it has earned the nickname “Wide Receiver University” over the last half decade. The Tigers continue to haul in blue chip recruits at receiver and this trend won’t be going away anytime soon.
As the coaching staff begins its search for fresh hands for their No. 1 ranked quarterbacks to throw to, Myers Park (N.C.) standout Elijah Bowick could fit the bill.
The 6-foot-1, 187-pound junior currently does not have any visits officially planned for this fall yet, but told The Clemson Insider he will be visiting schools and will “most definitely” be attending a game in Death Valley this season.
He does not know which game he will visit, but he has one in mind. Right now, UNC, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, East Carolina, N.C. State and Duke are showing the most interest in Bowick right now.
In terms of favorites at this point, Bowick “hasn’t really been focused on that” so far and is trying to find the school where he “can be a weapon…and fit their playing style.”
While Clemson has not extended an offer to Bowick he said “only time will tell” whether or not talks between the two sides will ramp up once they get a month or two into the season.
Bowick does not know much about the Clemson program and is excited to get down to the Valley for a game.
“I really haven’t been there so when I go there to watch a game and find what I am looking for then I will know,” he said. “I’m just excited to watch them play live.”
From what he has seen so far, Bowick is impressed by what Clemson has done and the impressive facilities, but wants to see more.
“Their facilities and everything, but I want to watch them live to get the full experience,” he said.
There is still a long way before Bowick becomes the next addition to WRU, but they have time to establish a strong relationship and present an offer before he narrows down his recruitment at the end of his season or during the spring.
