Shane Bowman, Defensive End
Rankings: 83 3* Scout / 8 (WA) 3* Rivals / 62 3* 247
Offer sheet: Nevada, Oregon State
Shane Bowman is a local kid who Steve Sarkisian and his staff overlooked, so he committed to Oregon State. Chris Petersen's staff ensured that we don't see another Scott Crichton situation by offering Bowman, getting him in on a visit, and securing his flip from the Pac-12 rival Beavers.
Butch Goncharoff is really high on Bowman, and Goncharoff has seen a ton of good players come through the high school ranks. If Bowman is good enough for Butch and good enough for Pete, then he's good enough for me.
Bowman could potentially play tight end or defensive end, but with Drew Sample already in this class, it seems he is destined for the defensive side of the ball, potentially growing into a jumbo end or maybe even moving inside.
