Brigham Young University

Bower, a 6-foot-3, 242-pound prep All-American from Meridian, Idaho, is another well-traveled QB. He came to BYU in 2006 after serving a church mission. That winter he transferred to Bakersfield Community College after falling behind Max Hall in the competition to replace John Beck. He led Bakersfield to a 12-1 season, completing 61 percent of his passes, for 3,034 yards and 35 TDs, and was named first-team All-American. That earned him a scholarship to the University of Tulsa, where, in two seasons, he completed 26 of 51 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 150 yards and three touchdowns. After playing in 14 games as a sophomore, he played in only two as a junior. He transferred to McNeese State for his senior season and won the starting job. He played in 10 games, completed 113 of 199 passes (57 percent) for 1,476 yards, eight TDs and nine interceptions for the 6-5 Cowboys. In his debut for McNeese, he threw for 288 yards and two TDs and ran for another TD to beat Lamar.

Doug let it go. He's gone. Your scrambling for something to write about, certainly you can find something new to report. This is old news. SerIously someone else already noted a list of other top recruits who left BYU. Be more original.
