SAND SPRINGS — Michael Bowie finally feels comfortable with his college decision. Bowie, a 6-foot-5, 300 pound offensive tackle from Sand Springs, originally committed to Ron Prince and Kansas State. But after Prince was fired, he re-committed to Texas Tech. And finally, after a December visit to Oklahoma State, he committed to OSU.
“The first reason I changed my mind was because of the coaching change at Kansas State,” Bowie said. “Then, when I took that trip down to O-State, I just felt better when I was there.” Bowie, who was named to the 2008 Oklahoman All-State team on the offensive line, said Oklahoma State is a better fit for him than Tech would have been. “I just like the whole place,” Bowie said. “It wasn't one thing in particular that impressed me. It was everything. I just felt like it was a better place for me than Texas Tech. It's a little closer to home.”
