FAU gains TE Dustin Bowens

Dustin Bowens (Bunnell, Fla./Flagler Palm Coast) is the latest senior prospect to give the Owls a commitment for 2013, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports.

Alcorn State, Florida International and Ole Miss also recruited the 6-foot-4, 230-pound tight end.

“They told me that after they watched my film, they thought I could come in and help them in a short amount of time,” Bowens said. “They said with my build and athleticism, I could help quickly... I like the program, the area and the offense they run. I just feel like it is a good place for me.”

He caught 16 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Florida Atlantic has 12 pledges.
