Brian Bowen has found a new home.

Under the NCAA's current transfer rules, Bowen must sit out at least two semesters before taking the floor.

Bowen was ranked as the No. 13-overall player in the nation by 247sports, having committed to play for then-Louisville head coach Rick Pitino back in June. Louisville was a late addition to Bowen's college list.

Bowen has also denied knowing anything about alleged payments to his family, and an attorney for the freshman, Jason Setchen, said in November that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had cleared his client of any wrongdoing. In an interview with ESPN's Jeff Goodman, he declared that he was unaware of such an arrangement.

Meanwhile, both Bowen and SC officials expressed happiness with his new situation.

Bowen told Goodman that his goal remained to play college basketball. He is a strong, athletic small forward, who can really shoot the ball and rebound. Bowen, a MI native who finished high school in IN, was a 2017 McDonald's high school all-American and the Gatorade state player of the year in Indiana. "I'm really excited to get an opportunity like this with a terrific coach like Frank Martin and a program like SC", he told ESPN.

"Brian deserves a fresh start, and I would like to thank our university administration, President (Harris) Pastides, our board of trustees and Ray Tanner for their hard work and guidance in helping Brian become a member of our Gamecock family".

Lamont Evans, a former assistant under Martin, was one of four assistant coaches named in the Federal Bureau of Investigation complaint released in September. Kentucky plays at USC on January 16, but the Gamecocks do not make a return trip to Lexington this season. Evans, who coached at Oklahoma State last season, is accused of accepting at least $22,000 to "exert his influence over certain student athletes" at Oklahoma State and SC.
