"Brian deserves a fresh start and I would like to thank our University administration, President Pastides, our Board of Trustees and Ray Tanner for their hard work and guidance in helping Brian become a member of our Gamecock family", SC head coach Frank Martin said.

Bowen says he knew nothing about the payment, but Louisville suspended him indefinitely, and gave him the opportunity to transfer. Bowen was at the forefront of the Louisville Cardinals recruiting scandal, reportedly having received $100,000 to commit to play for the Cardinals before he was ruled ineligible. He recently told Outside the Lines that he had no knowledge of the alleged payment.

"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.

Bowen also said his goal remained to play college basketball, even if there wasn't much interest from schools because of the uncertainty regarding his situation.


Meanwhile, both Bowen and SC officials expressed happiness with his new situation. Now the school will submit for reinstatement in hopes he will be able to play next season for the Gamecocks.

The player at the center of of the FBI's investigation into Louisville basketball has found a new home. "I have the utmost faith in the compliance staff at SC and ultimately in the NCAA". "Based upon the facts and application of the NCAA's Bylaws, Brian should be reinstated in my opinion".

Bowen, also a Creighton target before he picked Louisville past year, was held out of practices and games after the Cardinals announced they were being investigated as part of a federal corruption probe of bribery in college basketball that led to the firing of coach Rick Pitino. Evans, who coached at Oklahoma State last season, is accused of accepting at least $22,000 to "exert his influence over certain student athletes" at Oklahoma State and SC.

While Bowen has not practiced yet, Martin said his addition has brought a jolt of energy to the program, which advanced to the Final Four a year ago.
