Georgia DT scheduled to visit Army
The Black Knights were able to receive the commitment from two potential defensive tackles last week, but that has not slowed down the coaching staff in their attempt to pull another.
Defensive tackle Sam Jowers out of Atlanta (Ga.) Westminster High School was the recipient of a visit from Coach Clarence Holmes, who ironically would be Jowers' position coach, should the 6-foot-3, 270 pounder end up becoming a Black Knight.
"I talked to Coach Holmes from Army the other day," shares Jowers.
"We sat out by the stadium and talked to me about what Army had to offer me. He had a lot of good things to say and he sort of eased some of anxiety you usually have when you hear and talk about West Point. He wants me to play there and did a good job enlightening me about Army."
According to Jowers, the Black Knights have been recruiting him really hard since the middle of his football season and that he is scheduled to visit the West Point campus on the 20th (January).
He is also taking an official visit to Georgia the weekend of January 27th and the Bulldogs are looking at him as preferred walk-on
Jowers has offers from Army, Eastern Kentucky, Tulane and several Patriot League offers.
Those who have seen Jowers play, his style has been described as being a very physical player, fast off the ball and quick feet
Jowers also played offensive guard, but the majority of schools are looking at him at defensive tackle, although he said Eastern Kentucky is projecting him as an offensive guard.
He closed out his chat with GoBlackKnights.com by stated he has really begun to research both Army football and the West Point lifestyle.
"I have checked their website and had an opportunity to see what a day in the life of a cadet and saw what it was like to be a Army football player," he adds. "I'm looking forward to watching the CBS special on West Point."
Westminster finished 8-5 and lost in the 2nd round.
