A new school has emerged as a contender for the top uncommitted 5-star recruit.
The recruiting drama surrounding Brian Bowen got a little more interesting Tuesday morning. Bowen, the top uncommitted recruit remaining in the 2017 class, has already been linked to Michigan State, DePaul, Creighton, and Oregon.
According to college basketball analyst Jon Rothstein of CBS, Texas is now a "legitimate" contender to land the 5-star prospect.
The Longhorns recently landed the No. 2 recruit in the 2017 class, Mo Bamba, and is in prime position to add another top recruit. If Shaka Smart lands Bowen, watch out for the Longhorns next season.
