However, it’s not easy to believe, especially because he had a historic record-setting freshman season for the defending national champion Bulldogs in 2021.
Bowers had a team-high 56 receptions for 882 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2021. He also had a rushing score for Georgia last season. Bowers was an AP and Coaches’ All-SEC First Team selection, plus was named the SEC Freshman of the Year.
