Louisville not reinstating freshman Brian Bowen at center of FBI investigation

Louisville not reinstating freshman Brian Bowen at center of FBI investigation

The University of Louisville announced Wednesday that suspended 5-star freshman small forward Brian Bowen will not play for the school's basketball team. With all the scandal that has plagued the Louisville program in recent years, the organization will play this one safe and not allow Bowen - who recently hired an attorney - to suit up in a Cardinals uniform.

Earlier this month, Bowen's lawyer told ESPN that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had cleared Bowen. Louisville reportedly chose not to reinstate him. He will remain on scholarship as long as he is at Louisville but could transfer to another school, according to the university.

Since the investigation began, UofL has fired athletics director Tom Jurich, head basketball coach Rick Pitino and assistant men's basketball coach Jordan Fair. "I had an AAU director call me and ask me if I'd be interested in a player (Bowen)". The 6-foot-7 forward was not considered a clear-cut one-and-done prospect, but his combination of size, skill and outside shooting prowess could earn him the chance to play in the National Basketball Association someday. I said 'Yeah, I'd be really interested.' They had to come in unofficially, pay for their hotel, pay for their meals.

Bowen is not allowed to practice or play for the team.
