Bowen's had a ton of off the field issues at PSU and was recently reinstated after his 3rd suspension.
Bowen was supposed to start at MIKE for PSU. He started 9 games last year as a junior (missed 4 due to suspension) and 12 in 2016 as a sophomore. PSU'S top 2 MIKEs from last year's depth chart are gone as well as another starting LB. PSU has now lost 8 starters from last years D plus Bowen and the 2 DEs who medically retired this offseason. I can't imagine that D will be too good this year.
