The player at the center of of the FBI's investigation into Louisville basketball has found a new home.

Provided he stays at SC until deemed eligible by the governing body of college sports, Gamecocks coach Frank Martin just scooped up an NBA-level talent.

Now, a possible fresh start.

Once discovered, the Cardinals kept him from practicing and despite being cleared by the FBI of "investigative impediments" on November 2, the school announced he would not play for the program and granted him a release. He will do that now, all the while knowing there are questions out there concerning what happened at Louisville and exactly what part, if any, he played in that.

"Brian is an exceptional young man and a basketball player with a very high IQ for the game", Gamecocks coach Frank Martin said.

Unless granted some form of hardship waiver, since Bowen was at Louisville, he will have to sit out a season before being eligible to play for the Gamecocks. "We believe the NCAA, once they have heard all of the evidence, will promptly reinstate Brian". "I have the utmost faith in the compliance staff at SC and ultimately in the NCAA". The unnamed prospect then committed to Louisville on June 3, the same date Bowen ended a long, freakish recruitment with the announcement that he had chosen the Cardinals. Though not mentioned directly, Brown was later identified as the "unnamed player" that Adidas funneled $100,000 to at the request of a Louisville coach. In an interview with ESPN's Jeff Goodman, he declared that he was unaware of such an arrangement. Pitino, after 16 seasons with the Cardinals, was sacked October 16. He had the right to remain on scholarship for as long as he chose to stay at Louisville and also received written permission to contact other schools to seek a transfer.

"I can not speak for the NCAA but I am confident that they will be fair and will afford Brian the due process that he deserves", attorney Jason Setchen said.

"I don't know anything about it", he added.

Bowen is a former McDonald's All-American and five-star recruit in the 247Sports Composite with a 0.9941 rating.
