Former Texas Tech Quarterback has transferred to a school in the Big Ten
Michigan has added quarterback Alan Bowman, a transfer from Texas Tech
During his high school career at Grapevine High School in Grapevine ,Texas , he threw for 11,393 yards and 119 touchdowns and finished his senior season with 3,570 yards and 38 touchdowns. He chose Texas Tech over offers from Cincinnati, Illinois Houston, and Illinois, among others.
Bowman, made 16 career starts with the Red Raiders, announced he is joining the Wolverines in a social media post on Sunday. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder is a graduate transfer and can play immediately. He has three years of eligibility.
Bowman started as a freshman against The Houston Cougars with 605 yards and five touchdowns. During his three-year career, he made 16 starts and was 478-of-713 for 5,260 yards and had 17 interceptions and 33 touchdowns. His average completion rate was 67%.
Bowman suffered an ankle injury last season that didn’t prove serious, his first two seasons he struggled with injuries. As a freshman in 2018, he suffered a collapsed lung, which forced him to miss four games and portions of two others. The next year, he broke his collarbone and missed the final nine games.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh was asked last Thursday during a Zoom with reporters if there’s a common theme why the quarterbacks left Michigan.
“I mean, point to there’s been a trend in college football that way,” Harbaugh said. “Players increasing every year going into the portal. Now that it looks like the one-time transfer is definitely at hand, close, anyway, I think it’s something the players are investigating and looking into.”
