Bowens a Bruin

Isiah Bowens, an outside linebacker from Bishop Amat High School is the latest pledge for the Bruin's 2009 class. This puts UCLA to four commits for the next class and all of them are on defense. I'm pretty sure we'll see some offense commits soon after spring practice as our coaching staff completes the installation of Chow's scheme.

Here is a YouTube highlight reel of Bowens in action (#2). The video primarily shows him as a receiver but he'll likely lineup on defense for the blue and gold. Bowen isn't the biggest kid, just yet, at 6'3" and 220 lbs. I'm sure, by the time he gets to Spaulding field, he'll have added some more weight to the tall frame. He's a talented athlete that also plays baseball. Bowen's had two outstanding offers from SDSU and Texas A&M.
