Class of 2017 five-star small forward Brian Bowen has included Michigan in his list of Final 12 schools.

Along with Michigan, the list includes Arizona, Indiana, Kentucky, Oregon, Michigan State, UCLA, Creighton, Kentucky, UNLV, North Carolina State, and Texas.

The 6-foot-7, 195-pound athlete from La Lumiere High School in La Porte, Indiana is the No. 13 overall player in his class, according to 247Sports. He is the third-best small forward in the country and was the top player in the state of Michigan before transferring from Saginaw Arthur Hill High School to La Lumiere High School.

During his final year at Saginaw Arthur Hill, his sophomore season, Bowen averaged 19.0 points, 14.0 rebounds, four assists and two blocks per game. He led the Lumberjacks to the Michigan Class A state championship, but the team fell 62-59 against Detroit Western International. Nevertheless, the five-star led all scorers with 21 points and snatched a team-high 11 rebounds.

Bowen averaged 22.5 points, 7.2 rebounds and two assists for Meanstreets at the Peach Jam last month and was named to the All-Peach Jam Second Team by the D1 Circuit.

He was offered by Michigan on June 20th.
