Welcome Tayvone! QB who can run and throw! One of Pennsylvania's finest. #GoDeacs pic.twitter.com/sNeTXWCaAx— Dave Clawson (@CoachClawson) February 1, 2017
Bowers originally committed to Wake Forest in May of 2016 and chose Wake Forest over Rutgers. The 6’2” quarterback completed 234 of 385 (60.5%) passing attempts for 3,576 yards, 42 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions as a junior. His impressive statistics earned him first-team all-state. Bowers, who played for Bishop McDevitt, was throwing to receivers who ultimately signed with Virginia, Bowling Green, and Boston College. Because of the high level of talent surrounding him, it can be difficult to judge his skills. That said, he has decent arm strength and is also mobile enough to make plays with his feet when plays break down.
