Robert Morris currently sits tied for second in the Northeast Conference and will once again battle to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament.
Saturday night, Andy Toole’s squad takes on St. Francis Brooklyn and will also be hosting a talented recruit.
Class of 2019 three-star wing Cartier Bowman (6-foot-5, 180 pounds) from the Patrick School in Montclair, New Jersey will make an unofficial visit to Robert Morris.
As be prepared to make the drive to Moon Township, Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke with Bowman to learn more about his talks with the Colonials program.
“Robert Morris got a new assistant coach this year in Dave Fedor,” Bowman said. “Him and I have known each other since I was a freshman because of me playing AAU and playing for Team Rio. Because of that we already had a bond and it just made it easier for him to come look at me when I got the job.
”Coach Fedor knows how I play and just wanted me to come check them out, see the campus and see how they play. They’re looking for another wing for next year and want me to fill that spot.”
Bowman believes that the strengths of his game are his slashing ability, his ability to get to the rim to finish and his jumping ability. He believes he fits in best with “fast-pace basketball.”
PSN reached out to his AAU coach Mike Rice to get his thoughts on Bowman.
”Complete winner is my best description of Cartier,” Rice said. “A lot like Jeremy Chappell another player I had at RMU. Had some holes in his game coming out of high school but is such a competitor and hard worker that his best basketball is definitely ahead of him.”
Bowman doesn’t currently hold an offer from Robert Morris but that might be coming when he meets face-face with Toole this weekend.
Currently, he holds offers from NJIT and Florida Atlantic plus is hearing from a bunch of schools like Stony Brook, Radford, Townson, Cornell, Columbia, Seton Hall and Holy Cross.
