Ex-UofL Forward Bowen Enrolls at South Carolina
By The Associated Press
COLUMBIA, SC - Suspended Louisville freshman Brian Bowen Jr. has signed to play with South Carolina.

Bowen was held out of practices and games after Louisville announced it was being investigated as part of a federal corruption probe of bribery in college basketball that led to the firing of coach Rick Pitino.

The 6-foot-7 forward will sit out the next two semesters before hitting the court, due to NCAA transfer rules.

Bowen was suspended by Louisville after news of an alleged payment involving the Cardinals and his father to get him to join that school. The federal complaint stated that Adidas executive James Gatto and others attempted to funnel $100,000 to a recruit's family to gain his commitment to play for Louisville. Bowen was not named in documents, but details made clear that investigators were referring to the freshman.
