Bowen, who tweeted Wednesday morning, is reportedly close to returning to the football field for the Buckeyes. He suffered a leg injury midway through the season last year that cost him the rest of 2017.
Bowen hasn’t been back yet, but could return at some point in 2018. As for Burrell, he was a former Buckeye who transferred to Sam Houston State in May.
Sam Houston State competes in the FCS and Burrell’s announcement back in May came very soon after QB Joe Burrow let his intentions known that he was leaving the program.
