Verbal commitment Verbally committed to North Carolina State

Prior to his original commitment to Pittsburgh, Rowan was on record as favoring UCLA. However, since Rowan's September 2014 decommitment, Rick Pitino has been hot on his tail this season for Louisville. The Rowan family made the decision to move from Pittsburgh to South Florida for a number of reasons, including raising the level of competition Maverick would face to prepare him for the next level.

Apparently Wisconsin joined the race for Rowan in early October. Assistant coach Gary Close is the lead recruiter. Close visited Rowan last fall on October 16 and stopped back in to see Rowan drop 34 points in a state semifinal win at the end of February. Cardinal Gibbons, one of the top-ranked programs in the country, won the Florida Class 5A state title, giving Rowan state championships in two different states (Pennsylvania) in back-to-back seasons. In early April Rowan started seriously investigating the possibility of reclassifying to the 2015 class, which requires him to complete 1-2 summer courses at somewhere other than his current high school, complicating matters.

Wisconsin, along with Louisville, UCLA and Pittsburgh were among Rowan's Top 6 he tweeted on June 1. Since then, he took a visit to St. John's, his father's alma mater, and cut the list to three (Wisconsin, St. John's and N.C. State) temporarily. And after a lot of talk, it finally appeared Rowan would follow through and move to the 2015 class. With Bo Ryan moving on after next season and Louisville jumping back into the mix, Rowan's final four shifted once again to include Louisville, St. John's, N.C. State and West Virginia, with the Wolfpack getting the surprise commitment.
