Tre Bowman 6’2 SG –Your Newest Nittany Lion
So the offseason has started up and Penn State is out on the recruiting grind looking for some bodies to fill their 3 scholarships. Ed hasn’t disappointed and has already found the newest member of the squad. Tre Bowman, a 6’2 shooter from York PA an 86 on ESPN and the #92 shooting guard in his class. His school is the alma mater of Devin Ebanks, Antonio Pena(Nova) and Dan Jennings(Washington), Edwin Ubiles(Siena’s graduating leading scorer). His highlights show him to be a pretty good shooter with good hustle. If there is one thing Penn State needs right now it’s a good shooter to pick up where Babb left off. Bowman doesn’t seem to have any issue taking the outside shot and has a pretty pure jumper; so he seems to be a good pick up for a Penn State team that doesn’t have the luxury of a million people to offer too.
Bowman’s style of play really complements the driving ability of Taran and Talor so he could be key to any drive and dish opportunities Penn State might have. Bowman won’t need to shoot the same number of threes as Babb did a game, but if he can supplement the three-point shooting of Brooks, Battle, and Jackson it’ll be a big help. Highlights after the jump…

Tre Bowman, St. Thomas More – His rise up the board didn’t happen suddenly after one big game or week, instead it was a gradual escalation that started in January and now schools like Duquesne, Drexel, Oregon State, and Rhode Island are all said to be involved.
ESPN–”Bowman is a versatile player who does a number of things well but isn’t great in any particular area. He’s a good shooter with his feet set, shows good athleticism slashing to the basket and finishing, and is solid defensively. He makes good decisions handling and passing”
