Osseo forward Sam Dower continues to gather more and more interest and he recently added two more high major offers. His Net Gain team won the Gold division of the Adidas Super 64 championships this past week and Dower led his team with 19 points in the victory.
The 6-foot-9, 220 pound three star recruit had one of his better games against Team 94 when he put up 24 points in front of several coaches including the staff from Indiana. The entire Gonzaga and George Mason staffs watched Dower on the first day of the event and he put up 20 points.
Another set of coaching staffs was obviously impressed with these games because offers came shortly after the performances. "Sam got two new offers within the past two weeks," said Osseo head coach Tim Thiesen. "Penn State and Cal were the teams that offered."
At this point 11 division one schools have offered Dower. The schools included are California, Colorado State, Drake, George Mason, Gonzaga, Illinois State, Iowa, Montana, Northern Iowa, Penn State, and Saint Louis. Other schools watching Sam include Wisconsin, Iowa State, Miami-Florida, Indiana, Marquette, and Minnesota.
Dower knows that he is under constant critique so he told Inside Indiana that he's just focusing on working hard here at the end of July. "This is like the last chance to show what I got so I have been playing my hardest, getting ready to bring it each game," said Dower. "I just played as hard as I could. I am getting tired but I still need to get better at the defensive end. I can't just play offense."
