I went out to Glasgow on Tuesday to talk to the Scotties about Friday’s Class 2A state title game against Covington Holy Cross.
I’ll have full comments from that visit later, but I wanted to pass along some recruiting info from that trip.
Glasgow senior tight end Hunter Bowles said he’s still firm in his commitment to the University of Louisville. Bowles announced his verbal pledge to the Cardinals on Sept. 28.
The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Bowles said he’s been following Louisville closely this season, as the Cardinals (7-5) have put themselves in position for a potential BCS bowl.
Louisville’s easiest route to a BCS berth is a Cincinnati loss to Connecticut on Saturday. The Cardinals would likely face the ACC champion in the Orange Bowl.
“They’re getting there, and I think they have a great chance of possibly winning whichever bowl they get to,” Bowles said. “I’m really looking forward to getting there and playing there next year.”
Bowling Green senior offensive lineman Joe Manley is also verbally committed to Louisville. Bowles said he told Manley before he committed that Louisville coach Charlie Strong was capable of taking this year’s team to a BCS bowl.
“It’s kind of an, ‘I told you so’ thing,” Bowles said with a laugh.
Bowles has caught 19 passes for 335 yards and three touchdowns for Glasgow this year, but has played a bigger role as part of the Scotties’ powerful offensive front that has helped produce 50 rushing touchdowns.
Bowles, Manley and all other high school seniors can’t officially sign their national letters of intent until college football’s National Signing Day in February.
Glasgow meets Covington Holy Cross for the 2A title at 3 p.m. Friday at Houchens-Smith Stadium in Bowling Green.
