Power forward Cinmeon Bowers from Chipola Junior College in Marianna, Fla., became the first prospect to commit to coach Bruce Pearl at Auburn on Saturday.
Bowers signed with Florida State in November but was released from his national letter of intent in January after he was arrested for allegedly eating marijuana in order to conceal it from police officers during a traffic stop. Charges were later dropped.
Bowers told AuburnSports.com he wasn’t guilty of any wrongdoing during the alleged incident.
“About that incident, I was proven innocent,” he said. “I was falsely accused. People might think badly of me, but I don’t smoke. I was around the wrong people. People think I’m a bad guy – I’m a good guy.”
Bowers, who plans to sign with Auburn on Wednesday, believes he will be able to help the Tigers immediately.
“I looked at the depth chart and they need a four man,” Bowers told Auburn Sports. “I love the offense, they let the four man go and everybody shares the ball. It would be a great fit.”
Auburn signed two prospects – forwards Sam Logwood and Jack Purchase – during the fall signing period.
