College Basketball Recruiting: 4-star JUCO PF Cinmeon Bowers commits to Auburn Tigers

For the second time, the nation’s #1 junior college prospect has made a decision.

4-star power forward Cinmeon Bowers committed to the Auburn Tigers on Sunday.

“It feels so good to have it over,” Bowers told Austin W. Penny of AuburnUndercover. “Now I can just focus on my academics. I have to make sure to finish off strong and make all A’s.”

Bowers’ name should be familiar to college basketball fans. The 6’7, 260-pounder signed with the Florida State Seminoles back in November, but after signing, he was arrested for possession of marijuana and famously tried to eat the marijuana to hide it.

In March, the Seminoles decided to part ways Bowers, releasing him from his National Letter of Intent.

The Chipola College standout visited Auburn last week and although he couldn’t meet with new head coach Bruce Pearl, he loved what he saw.

“I really enjoyed myself,” Bowers said. “Coach Pearl couldn’t talk to me but Tony Jones has been around him for so long so whatever he says it’s basically coming from Coach Pearl. The team is like a family and I really like that.”

Bowers also had offers from the Louisville Cardinals and Memphis Tigers, among others.
