“That said, I just heard back that I was granted another year of eligibility, and we have unfinished business. I love Stillwater and this program, so I’ll be back in 2024 to make a championship run.” 

Bowman began his collegiate career at Texas Tech, where he played three seasons before spending the 2021 and 2022 seasons at Michigan. He transferred to Oklahoma State in January 2023.

“We appreciate the assistance of the Texas Tech training staff for providing us the documentation we needed to quickly process our waiver request.”
