The Florida Gators received big news on Saturday when they picked up yet another five star from the transfer portal.
Running back Demarkcus Bowman (5-10, 190, Lakeland, FL. High) announced he’s transferring to Florida after leaving the Clemson program last Thursday.
“It’s confirmed, I’m going to Florida,” Bowman said.
Bowman left the Clemson after playing in the first two games of the year as a true freshman and he gained 32 yards on nine attempts.
Several of Bowman’s former teammates at Lakeland and even some current Gators from the 2020 class were quick to tweet at and reach out to Bowman once the news broke about the running back transferring from Clemson.
The Lakeland running back was considered as one of the top backs in the country in the 2020 class and was a five star by most recruiting services and joins Lorenzo Lingard as five star running backs to transfer to Florida this year.
Bowman visited Gainesville several times during his recruitment and considered Florida all the way down to signing day despite being committed to Clemson since February of his junior year.
Now that Bowman has transferred to Florida, he fills a void for the Gators as Florida didn’t sign a running back in the 2020 class and wasn’t expected to sign one in the 2021 class.
