On Wednesday, three of his football players signed with schools, perhaps getting a chance to play right away.
That includes Wayne Wingrove, who could start as Idaho State’s center as a freshman. The Bengals are a Football Championship Subdivision team.
“I made the decision [Tuesday] night,” Wingrove said. “I liked the conference and I’ll get a chance to play.”
Terry Robinson, who grew up playing sports with Wingrove, signed with Furman. The quarterback ended his high school career with a school-record 4,249 passing yards.
Robinson’s brother, Gary, is a wide receiver at Furman.
Finally, Lavorius Beasley made his collegiate decision official as he signed with Dean College in Massachusetts.
“We got kids who do a good job in the classroom,” Bowen said. “We preach commitment and hard work, and what it means.”
