Updated, January 29th, 9:00am---John Tyler Football Coach Ricklan Holmes just told me Bowser has decommitted from Oklahoma State.  Bowser, according to Holmes, wants to play college basketball and in fact has an offer right now from Oral Roberts.  Bowser would listen to the possibility of playing both football and basketball if a program would offer that option.

Good choice.

Anytime you put on that uniform
it's time to compete.

He wants to play Basketball and Football.  Maybe one of the other suitors have sweetened the pot by telling him he can play hoops too.

IMO, he's a better football player. BUT, he's still pretty good in hoops.

I watched this kid play its hard to believe he could be better at basketball than football, but I wish him the best of luck with whatever he decides to do. I'm sure some College don't mind taken on him for both sports; it normally works out well for the football team. Jermicheal Finley, Kendall Wright, and Martellius Bennett. Just Saying

Don't forget Julius Peppers and Jimmy Graham (only played 1 year of football in college)...

He was recruited for both by Texas Basketball and Football, but at some point decided to focus solely on football.

Trying to play both in college is very hard to do. You miss all of the pre season work with basketball, so that puts you way behind. Also it takes awhile to get you shooting stroke. I hope he can handle if that is what he wants to do.
