Former Texas Tech QB Alan Bowman Transfers to Michigan

NCAA Football: Houston at Texas Tech

After announces he was entering the NCAA Transfer portal last month, former Texas Tech quarterback Alan Bowman has decided to transfer to the Michigan Wolverines.

Bowman made his announcement on Twitter on Sunday.


Bowman joins a quarterback room that includes redshirt sophomore Cade McNamara, true freshman J.J. McCarthy and redshirt freshman Dan Villari. Other than Bowman, only McNamara has appeared in a college game, and has only made one start in his career.

So Bowman appears like he will have a real chance to take snaps for Jim Harbaugh.

It’s not clear if Bowman can start participating in spring practice, because [layers must be enrolled in the University of Michigan to participate in spring ball. The Wolverines are already three days into their spring practice.

Bowman burst onto the scene in 2018 under Kliff Kingsbury, finishing with 2,600 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He was never able to duplicate that success under new head coach Matt Wells, who preferred more of a dual-threat option than what Bowman brought to the table. The last two seasons, Bowman combined for 2,600 yards, 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also dealt with injuries that hampered him the last couple of seasons.
