Ex-Texas Tech QB Bowman transfers to Michigan

Michigan's offense is adding a veteran presence at quarterback in Texas Tech transfer Alan Bowman, who announced his decision to commit to the Wolverines on Sunday.

Bowman entered the transfer portal on Jan. 25 and is a graduate transfer, so he will be eligible immediately for Michigan. He threw for 1,602 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season for Texas Tech and brings three years of experience to the table.

The Wolverines saw quarterback Joe Milton enter the transfer portal on Feb. 18, after Dylan McCaffrey entered the portal on Jan. 21. That left Michigan with only Cade McNamara, who threw for 425 yards and five touchdowns last season, and incoming freshman J.J. McCarthy, the No. 25-ranked recruit overall and the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the class.

Bowman gives Michigan another option and some experience to help an offense that ranked 78th in offensive yards per game and 44th in pass yards per game.

The Wolverines also added to the defense on Sunday when ESPN Junior 300 cornerback Will Johnson, the No. 29-ranked recruit overall, committed to the program.

Johnson is the top in-state recruit from Grosse Pointe South in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. He chose the Wolverines over Arizona State, Ohio State, Oklahoma and USC, and is now the highest-ranked commitment in Michigan's 2022 class.

Johnson is now following in the footsteps of his father, Deon Johnson, who also played cornerback for the Wolverines in the early 1990s.

The commitment is important for Michigan because it adds an elite player to a secondary that struggled in the 2020 season.

At one point, it appeared Johnson could commit to a different school. He is good friends with ESPN Jr. 300 defensive back Domani Jackson, who committed to USC. The two had said they wanted to be a package deal, but Johnson went on his own. It seemed Ohio State had also gained momentum at one point in his recruitment, especially with some uncertainty around Michigan's defense when Jim Harbaugh fired defensive coordinator Don Brown.

Harbaugh hired Mike Macdonald as co-defensive coordinator from the Baltimore Ravens and also added Maurice Linguist from the Dallas Cowboys as co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach.

Linguist had stints with the Dallas Cowboys, Texas A&M, Minnesota, Mississippi, Iowa State and Buffalo, and is known as an excellent recruiter.

Since hiring Linguist, Michigan has added Johnson, safety Taylor Groves and athlete Kody Jones to the class. The Wolverines now have six total commitments with Johnson and Jones as the only two ranked in the ESPN Jr. 300.
