Breakout Quarterbacks. AthlonSports ranks the top 25 quarterbacks that are primed for a breakout year and Texas Tech signal caller Alan Bowman checks in at #4:

Solving or addressing the quarterback position is often a focal point for most new coaches, but that’s not the case for Matt Wells at Texas Tech. The former Utah State head coach is stepping into one of the best quarterbacks situations for any first-year coach this fall. Bowman showed flashes of his potential as a true freshman last fall by throwing for 2,638 yards and 17 touchdowns over eight appearances. He torched Houston for 605 yards (a Big 12 freshman record) and five touchdowns on Sept. 15 and threw for 397 in a road win at Oklahoma State. Bowman missed four games due to injury, including the final three due to a partially collapsed lung suffered against Oklahoma on Nov. 3. Wells and play-caller David Yost will tweak a few things on offense, but Bowman should push for All-Big 12 honors with a full season of starts in 2019.
