MARIANNA—Chipola College’s Cinmeon Bowers announced Sept. 11 that he has committed to Florida State University’s men’s basketball squad for the 2014-15 season.
Bowers, a 6’6 forward, is a Milwaukee native who averaged 11 points and 7 rebounds per game last year for the Indians. Bowers is considered by many to be rated the No. 1 JUCO player in the nation. A four-star recruit in high school, Louisville and Memphis were among the other schools seriously considering Bowers.
“This is a great opportunity for Cinmeon to display his athletic talent at the highest level, while playing for the best coaches in the country,” said Chipola coach Patrick Blake.
Bowers is the first Class of 2014 commitment for Florida State.
