Summer camp for Utah State’s football team is only about two months away, and the Aggies will have a couple more new faces when it begins.
Junior college transfer Sean Carter and Josh Bowcut, who recently returned from his mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, announced their commitment to the Aggies on Tuesday on Twitter.
Carter, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound wide receiver, will have two years of eligibility remaining. Bowcut, a 6-5, 280-pound defensive lineman, will have all four years.
Bowcut was recruited by Oregon State when current USU head coach Gary Andersen was still with the Beavers. Bowcut actually signed with the Beavers prior to his mission and was part of their 2017 recruiting class.
“I just got back from my mission last week, and it was a great experience,” Bowcut posted on Twitter. “Things have changed though for me in the past two years, and I have decided to decommit from Oregon State, and have decided to go to Utah State University! This was a big decision, and I have spent quite a while thinking and praying about it, and I feel it is the right decision for me and my future. I wish Oregon State nothing but the best. With that being said, I am excited to join the team, and will be joining the team this summer. Go Aggies!”
Bowcut, a native of Sherwood, Oregon, was a two-star recruit coming out of high school. In his final season at Sherwood High, Bowcut finished with 34 tackles and 7.0 sacks in nine games. He also returned three kickoffs for an impressive 140 yards during his final season for the Bowmen.
Carter has spent the past two seasons at two different junior colleges. The native of Westlake Village, California, was teammates with current USU cornerback DJ Williams at Independence Community College in 2017.
As a freshman at Independence, Carter caught eight passes for 95 yards. Carter then transferred to Fullerton College for the 2018 campaign and graduated from there last December. In eight games for the Hornets last fall, Carter hauled in 12 receptions for 209 yards — 17.4 yards per catch — and one touchdown.
Carter, a two-star recruit, chose USU over New Mexico State, which offered him a scholarship last November.
“First off I would like to thank God for blessing me with this opportunity,” Carter posted on Twitter. “I’m grateful for my family, friends, and coach for the support along the way. With that being said I’ll be joining the Utah State University this summer. Thanks you to @CoachCollinsUSU @CoachPhillips_ @MikeSanfordUSU. Let’s Go Aggie Nation!!”
