Former men’s basketball player Brian Bowen has reportedly enrolled at South Carolina.
“I’m really excited to get an opportunity like this with a terrific coach like Frank Martin and a program like South Carolina,” Bowen told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
The five-star recruit is the player at the center of the FBI’s investigation on the university for a pay-to-play scandal with adidas. The scandal led to the firing of former men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino and athletic director Tom Jurich.
Bowen told ESPN’s Outside the Lines in a January interview that he knew nothing about the payments arranged by former adidas employees and U of L coaches.
Bowen will seek reinstatement from the NCAA.
