Demarkcus Bowman: 3 transfer targets for the former 5-star running back


Jeff Scott was his primary recruiter when he first joined Clemson

When Bowman first signed Clemson, former Tigers offensive coordinator Jeff Scott served as his primary recruiter. It should be noted that his second was Tony Elliott, who is now in charge of Virginia. While the Hoos are certainly a contender for Bowman, Tampa isn’t far from Lakeland. South Florida may not be Power Five, but there is an opportunity to play.


Orlando is close to home and former Auburn head coach Gus Malzhan is leading UCF

While UCF wasn’t among the teams that recruited Bowman heavily the first time around, things have certainly changed for the Orlando program. They are now managed by former Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn and are on the verge of becoming a Power Five. Orlando is very close to Lakeland but UCF has to play all its road games very far from Florida once the Knights join the Big 12 could be a problem.

Mario Cristobal will certainly have a use for the former 5-star player in The U’s backfield

Assuming Bowman has patience this time, the best place for him has to be in Miami. Former Hurricanes offensive lineman Mario Cristobal was called out by Eugene to do The U The U again. Cristobal will make Miami a national power again. With a former five-star chomp in 2023, this could be one heck of a pickup for the Canes if they land Bowman.

Other teams will be in play for Bowman, but the Floridian schools are probably the best bet right now.
