Former Oklahoma State OL Michael Bowie signs with Northeastern State
Former Oklahoma State offensive lineman Michael Bowie has signed with Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, the school announced Wednesday.
OSU coach Mike Gundy announced last week that Bowie, who was projected to start at left tackle for the Cowboys, was no longer with the program after violating team rules.
Bowie, a senior, made five starts in his first season at OSU in 2011. He originally signed with the Cowboys in 2009 but spent his first two seasons at Navarro College after he did not qualify academically at OSU.
Because NSU is a Division II school, Bowie will be eligible to play right away.
“Michael will be a huge addition to our offensive line,” NSU coach Kenny Evans said in a release. “He went through his first practice with us today, and you can tell that his talent level is as good as you’re going to find at this level. I’m really excited for him to put on the pads so we can see what he can do at game speed.”
Bowie will join former Sand Springs Charles Page High School teammates Johnny Deaton (who also transferred from OSU), Shane Devers and Terrance Dixon at NSU.
