ESPN No. 14 ranked 2018 recruit Brian Bowen, who was suspended by Louisville amid the school’s alleged role in a FBI bribery investigation and was then told he will never play for the school, is still looking for a college program.


Though he is now free to transfer to another school, there have been no takers for the top recruit thus far.


So his lawyer Jason Setchen has started the #freebrianbowen hashtag on Twitter to get his client on a college team.


“It is time for the world to know what I know: Brian Bowen did nothing wrong and deserves the chance to play college basketball!” Setchen said via Twitter.


“It is up to the NCAA to step up and do something to right this egregious situation,” added Setchen on Instagram. “To the kids wearing FBI shirts at UL road games — trade them in for FREE BRIAN BOWEN shirts. Demand that due process be afforded and that justice is done by reinstating Brian so that he can fulfill his lifelong dream of playing college basketball!”


For now Setchen said that Bowen will finish this academic semester at Louisville and then look to transfer.


Whichever school decides to give him a chance will be getting a heck of a player.


Bowen, a 6-7 small forward, averaged 22 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists last season for La Lumiere, leading the team to a 27-1 record and the 2017 DICK’s Nationals championship.


He also had a strong AAU season last summer, leading his MeanStreets Nike EYBL squad in scoring and rebounding, averaging 18.9 points and 7.4 rebounds on a loaded team that also included fellow 2018 recruits No. 75 Sr Isaiah Livers, No. 25 PG Sr Alonzo Verge, and No. 84 Nojel Eastern.


Bowen prides himself on his all-around game.


“The main thing I like to do is get my teammates involved,” Bowen told Scout. “My goal for every game is to try to get a triple-double, rebound the ball, pass the ball, and knock down big shots.”
