ProFootballFocus’ Cam Mellor writes that quarterback Alan Bowman is the second best true freshman in the nation:

In the quick passing game at Texas Tech, Bowman has shined. He’s only taken four sacks on his 256 dropbacks this season as he’s been well protected and kept clean from pressure on 75.8% of his total dropbacks. When kept clean, Bowman has completed 141-of-191 pass attempts for 1,625 yards and 11 touchdowns for a 110.1 passer rating. However, even when he’s pressured, the true freshman has shown a distinct ability to find the open man and keep the ball out of harm’s way.

On 62 pressured dropbacks this season, Bowman has completed 32-of-56 passes for 461 yards and a three-touchdown to no-interception line. His 101.9 passer rating when under duress is 10th in the country.
