Earlier this week, WVU coach JuJuan Seider struck in the state of the Florida when he landed WR Mike Harley and this morning he struck again when former teammate Cody Bowes committed to the Mountaineers.
Bowes, 6’4 285 lbs. offensive guard from Miami Southridge (FL), gives the Mountaineers their first offensive line commit for the 2017 class. Bowes is considered one of the top guards in the state of Florida, a position in which WVU will need to fill for the future. Bowes footwork is one of the more impressive attributes compared to many guard prospects in this class. Bowes first step and pass blocking ability will fit well into the Mountaineers offensive scheme, especially if there is a resurgence of the air raid.
Bowes choose the Mountaineers over Cincinnati, East Carolina, Kentucky, Marshall, North Carolina, Ohio State, Pitt, and Tennessee, just one day after releasing a top 2 that featured Tennessee and WVU.
