Suspended Brian Bowen won't play for Louisville, has option to transfer

Louisville is taking another step to try and close out the basketball program's most recent scandal.

The university is under FBI investigation for a pay-to-play scandal involving freshman Brian Bowen and a 2019 recruit.

"The University of Louisville has informed men's basketball student-athlete Brian Bowen that it will provide him written permission, per NCAA Bylaw 13.1.1.3, to contact another collegiate institutions if he wishes to transfer", the news release stated. Bowen's father is alleged to have struck a deal with a sports agent to receive $100,000 for his son to play basketball for the Cardinals.

Bowen had been suspended indefinitely at Louisville since late September when the FBI went public with its bombshell investigation into bribery and corruption in college basketball.

Assuming he does not attempt to transfer to another college and seek reinstatement from the NCAA, Bowen will have to seek another path to the National Basketball Association. I saw him against another great player from Indiana.

According to Jeff Greer of the Louisville Courier-Journal, the school also announced it will allow Bowen to seek a transfer if he so chooses. "I had an AAU director call me and ask me if I'd be interested in a player (Bowen)". Bowen could also opt to play one year in the National Basketball Association G League or just train by himself in preparation for the draft like fellow McDonald's All-American Mitchell Robinson is doing. Johnson was also not named in the investigation, but was initially put on leave October 6.
