5-Star SF Brian Bowen Officially Announces Commitment To Louisville

After a roller coaster recruitment, five-star wing Brian Bowen officially announced his commitment to the Louisville Cardinals this afternoon.

Bowen was spotted in the Louisville directory earlier this week, and there was a Courier-Journalreport that he had officially enrolled at the school, but Bowen had kept quiet about the decision, saying he'd make the announcement this afternoon. Moments ago, that confirmation came, via Twitter.

Bowen, a star at La Lumiere School in Indiana, was the final uncommitted five-star player in the class of 2017, and had a pretty wild recruitment, during which schools like Arizona, Creighton, DePaul, and Michigan State all looked to be seriously involved. Louisville seems like a pretty late contender, but ultimately came out with the prized recruit.

247Sports ranks Bowen as the No. 18 player in the class of 2017, and has him No. 5 among small forward and No. 2 in Indiana. He joins five-star center Malik Williams, and four-stars Jordan Nwora, Darius Perry, and Lance Thomas, all of whom have signed with the Cards already, in what is an absolutely stacked recruiting class.
