An additional walk-on is making his way on to the 2017-18 roster. Nashville native A.J. Bowers is a freshman from Nashville. Bowers prepped at MLK Magnet High School and began the semester as a manager. He moved into a practice player role as nagging injuries opened the door. He took advantage becoming the 14th player on the roster.
