Tampa Prep's Jay Bowie, a senior standout for the Terrapins basketball team, has picked up an offer from Division I Marist, according to his coach, Joe Fenlon.
The 6-foot-5 small forward, who averages 17 points and 10 boards a game, also is being recruited by Niagra and North Florida. Those schools have not yet offered, but each visited Tampa Prep to scout Bowie in person last week.
Bowie has more than 1,000 career points, carries a 3.8 GPA and scored 1,300 on his SAT.
Tampa Prep plays at Naples Community School on Saturday with a berth in the Class 2A final four on the line. (2A bracket HERE)
