Adding an underrated QB prospect that is a dual-threat that can run Herman and offensive coordinator Tim Beck’s scheme is a good option to at least explore. Three-star Las Vegas, NV, dual-threat quarterback Micah Bowens is an ideal fit for Herman considering the recruiting ranking he holds at this moment.
A nationally prominent high school football program like that of Bishop Gorman is a good place to draw talent like Bowens from, since he might be able to handle the spotlight that comes along with playing for the Texas football program. Bowens also runs an offense in Vegas that is more similar to that of Herman and Beck’s than another prospect like Holstein.
Bowens ranks as the nation’s No. 23 2020 high school dual-threat quarterback, so there’s a few hurdles that scouts and coaches see to him becoming successful at the Power Five level. That didn’t stop some quality Power Five programs like the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Ole Miss Rebels, and Oregon Ducks from sending him an offer, though.
What Bowens brings to the table is a standout ability to throw on the run and the awareness to know the exact moment that he needs to roll out of the pocket and step up to make any throw. Holstein and Bowens are more of developmental prospects for a program like the Horns, but he is worth the looks from the coaching staff.
