3-star offensive lineman Cody Bowes picks WVU over Tennessee, UCF

Cody Bowes, a three-star offensive lineman who recently transferred to Southridge-Miami High, committed to West Virginia on Thursday.


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Three-star offensive lineman Cody Bowes, whose 21 scholarship offers included a dozen from Power Five schools, committed to West Virginia on Thursday, according to a report from Rivals.

The 6-foot-3, 270-pounder from Southridge High in Miami, Fla., had narrowed his finalists to Tennessee and Central Florida this week. He also holds offers from the likes of Ohio State, Pitt, North Carolina, N.C. State, Kentucky, Iowa State and Marshall.

Rivals rates Bowes the No. 34 offensive tackle in the 2017 class and the 55th-best prospect overall in Florida, where Mountaineers assistant Ja’Juan Seider continues to establish himself in recruiting. Bowes told Rivals writer Keenan Cummings he projects as a guard at WVU.

Before his junior year, Bowes called Florida his dream school, but the Gators haven’t extended an offer yet.

WVU’s ninth commitment for this cycle, Bowes recently transferred to Southridge from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, where another Mountaineers commitment, four-star receiver Mike Harley, is entering his senior year. Bowes played his sophomore season at Gulliver Prep in Kendall, Fla.

Scout and 247 Sports also rank Bowes a three-star recruit.
