Heel Tough Blog: The Heels Express Interest In Bryce McGowens

After committing to Florida State back in February, Bryce McGowens announced he has reopened his recruitment, citing he wants to make sure he made the right decision. Although the Seminoles are still involved, they are now far from alone. Since decommitting, McGowens has become one of the most sought after prospects of the 2021 class. 


McGowens has heard from a plethora of schools, including Coach Roy Williams and the Tar Heels. McGowens does not currently hold a North Carolina offer, but that could change quickly. I expect Coach Williams and staff to stay in close contact, attempt to secure a virtual visit, and evaluate from there. With just two commits for the 2021 class, the Tar Heels would have plenty of room to welcome the coveted prospect.

It is early in the process and there is no new favorite to land McGowens, but starting today, McGowens is set to virtually meet with Nebraska, Wake Forest, and LSU. For what it‘s worth, McGowens has multiple connections to the Nebraska program; Bryce’s older brother Trey transferred from Pittsburgh to Nebraska, Bryce’s cousin, Chase Clemmons, holds a Nebraska scholarship offer, and Bryce is good friends with current Nebraska freshman, Elijah Wood.


According to 247Sports, McGowens is a 6-foot-5, 175 pound shooting guard from Greenville, South Carolina. He is a five star and listed as the number three overall shooting guard in the class. McGowens initially chose Florida State over multiple schools, including South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Pittsburgh.
