Terps men add recruits Bowie, Walker

The University of Maryland added two names to its 2007 recruiting class yesterday.

Adrian Bowie, a 6-foot-3 junior shooting guard from Montrose Christian in Rockville, said he has committed orally to play basketball for the Terps. Shane Walker, a 6-10 power forward who played under first-year Terps assistant coach Chuck Driesell at Bishop Ireton in Alexandria, Va., also said he committed.

Bowie, a native of Greenbelt, is a former ballboy for the Terps. His father, John, was an equipment manager for the team for 13 seasons until 2001. John Bowie is still employed by the Maryland athletic department as equipment manager for the baseball, field hockey, lacrosse and soccer teams, his son said.

Bowie, who was offered a scholarship, and Walker join Baltimore standouts Braxton Dupree (Calvert Hall) and Dino Gregory (Mount St. Joseph) in the 2007 recruiting class. Bowie will eventually reunite with former Montrose teammate Greivis Vasquez, a four-star recruit who is one of Maryland's four incoming freshmen this season.

Bowie said he also was recruited heavily by Georgetown, Florida, North Carolina State and Florida State.
