big time commitment
now we need to lock up at ward
Dowlar says there is a chance he comes to school but has work to do in the classroom so it sounds like he'll take whatever offer he gets which won't be a bad one if he can't qualify!
The kid pumps it into the 90's from the left side with some good off speed pitches so lets all cross our fingers that we can get this guy on the mound for Florida State
it is too early to know anything. his draft is in over 2 years
I saw him pitch in the state playoffs a few weeks ago. He got roughed up by a tough lineup, but his stuff is definitely there. He's reportedly thrown at about 94, which, obviously, would be huge if FSU can get him to school.

Carson Sands has always wanted to pitch in his hometown in college and wear Garnet and Gold.
That meant Florida State was the perfect fit for Sands.
The rising junior at North Florida Christian took a step closer on Wednesday afternoon to fulfilling his dream when he committed to the Seminoles.
The left-handed Sands, 17, considered one of the nation's top pitchers, went 8-2 with 0.83 earned-run average this past season.
Sands allowed just eight earned runs in 67.2 innings and also finished with 103 strikeouts.
Sands, a 6-foot-4, 190-pounder, said he selected FSU over Mississippi. Sands made it official during a visit to FSU on Wednesday with his family.
"I had decided that this was my hometown and I always wanted to wear Garnet and Gold, so that made my decision easy," Sands said.
"I wish I could go out there right now and pitch, I am so excited."
Glad to have him aboard.
Watch out for his brother too been told he is as good as Carson. Although I hear Cole is a Gator fan.
His brother Cole is pretty good, just not in Carson's class yet. Carson is probably the best pitcher to come out of Tallahassee, maybe ever. Well maybe not ever, but he would near the head of the class.
