The Bellevue (Wash.) defensive end, Shane Bowman, continues to grow and opening school's eyes...

Bellevue (Wash.) defensive lineman Shane Bowman (6-4, 240), has been using the offseason to add more weight.

Playing his junior year around 210-215, Bowman has gotten to 240, in hopes of playing as a defensive end at the next level.

“I’m getting recruited as a defensive end, or a hybrid in a 3-4,” said Bowman. “My goal is to try to get to 245 pounds by the season.”

Bowman doesn’t have any offers yet, but Arizona State has been talking with him and he visited Tempe earlier this spring for Junior Day.

“I’ve been talking to Arizona State a lot and that’s my top school,” said Bowman. “I went down for their Junior Day and I love it there. They’re recruiting me for their “Devil Backer” role.”

Bowman met with assistant coach Joe Lorig, who recruits the Northwest, as well as defensive line coach Jackie Shipp and defensive coordinator Paul Randolph on the visit.

“We had a really good talk and I think I’m going to camp there,” said Bowman.

Aside from the Sun Devils, Bowman is hearing from Washington State, Idaho, Boise State and UCLA.

He visited Washington State last weekend and plans to camp at UCLA and Boise State.

“I’ve actually been talking with Boise State more seriously and UCLA is just starting to talk with me more. I know Coach (Jim) Mora and I’ve heard a lot about UCLA from Myles Jack. Idaho and Washington State were the first two schools who called me,” said Bowman.

Academically, Bowman has a 3.3 GPA.

Brandon is in his ninth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
