It is cutdown season, with four-star linebacker Troy Bowles the latest athlete to release his updated top list of programs. The Florida standout put out his top eight programs on Monday night.

A four-star at Jesuit (Tampa, FL), Bowles is the No. 96 player in the nation according to Rivals. He is the No. 19 player in the state and the fourth-best linebacker in the nation according to Rivals.

Bowles has narrowed down his college selection to eight programs: Ohio State, Clemson, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Rutgers, Auburn and Oklahoma.

For those keeping track at home, that is one ACC program, one that is currently in the Big XII, two from the Big Ten and four SEC schools.

A number of big programs didn’t make the cut, including the likes of Boston College, Florida State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oregon and Penn State.
