Boston College running back Jordan Gowins became the third Eagle to announce his intention to transfer from the program, announcing on his Twitter account on Monday night that he is planning to leave Chestnut Hill.
After much thought and prayer, I have decided to transfer from Boston College. I thank BC for the opportunity & I thank God for guiding me.— Jordan Gowins (@Destined_23) December 1, 2015
Gowins was used as a true freshman this past season, rushing 15 times for 43 yards (an average of 2.9 yards per carry) on the season. Those 15 carries came in only three games, with 33 yards coming on eight carries coming against Wake Forest. He gained 11 yards on six carries against Clemson and touched the ball once against Virginia Tech.
Gowins had two offers on the table during his recruitment after having interest from five schools. He received offers from Boston College and Stony Brook while receiving interest from Maryland, Penn State, and Rutgers. Logjammed in the running back depth chart, however, Gowins found himself competing for snaps alongside Tyler Rouse, Myles Willis, Richard Wilson, and Marcus Outlow after the season-ending injury to Jonathan Hilliman. Gowins, a fixture on the two-deeps throughout the season, was unable, however, to regularly break through for touches.
Gowins becomes the third Eagle to announce his intention to transfer today. He joins fellow running back Outlow alongside RB/WR Sherman Alston.
Best of luck to Jordan as he begins the next phase of his career and prepares to leave Boston College.
