DePaul's Brian Bowen Odds Boosted With Alkins Return To Arizona

  • Published in Chicago Hoops

Rawle Alkins has decided to withdraw from the NBA Draft and return to Arizona which should increase DePaul’s chances of landing five-star La Lumiere School (IN) wing Brian Bowen.

DePaul is among the finalists for Bowen along with Oregon, Creighton and Arizona.

Bowen played for newly hired DePaul assistant coach Shane Heirman at La Lumiere.

Alkins return along with Emmanuel Akot moving from 2018 into the 2017 recruiting class for Arizona essentially takes out a strong competitor for Bowen’s services.
