For anyone thinking MSU might have gotten in the muck re: Bowen

Per Adam Zagoria Interesting quote from Steve Haney, attorney for Christian Dawkins: ‘Michigan State was one of the only schools that was NOT GOING to pay Brian Bowen to go there’ Haney listed MSU, Arizona, Oregon, Texas and Creighton as his final 5 before he picked Louisville in June 2017.

After that, the Cardinals kept […]

The Cardinals lost several players from that team, gained two grad transfer guards […]
