Seahawks put out Q&A with Tre Flowers:
Tre Flowers modeled his game after the team he’s now a part of. While most of the members of the Legion of Boom are gone, Tre Flowers looked up to them and models his game after those players. The Seahawks talked to him for a Q&A and he had some answers you wouldn’t expect. Like that he would play quarterback and he can throw the ball pretty well.

Some news on the FBI investigation:
The college basketball fraud trial rolls on today. Dan Wetzel wrote a fantastic preview on what is set to happen. Brian “Tugs” Bowen II’s father gave testimony on Thursday that his son was offered lots of different perks as a 2017 top-30 recruit.
Bowen answered questions under direct questioning from a federal prosecutor for about two hours at the Daniel Patrick Moynihan United States Courthouse. Among the school and entities named for seeking or delivering payments to Bowen were Louisville, Arizona, Creighton, Oklahoma State, Texas, one high school and three AAU teams. Additional allegations of NCAA violations were mentioned at Kansas and potentially Oregon.
Some specific amounts were floated – $150,000, $8,000 for a car and “an undisclosed amount” to buy a house from Oklahoma State, for example. There was also a $50,000 offer straight up from Arizona. And so on.
Oklahoma State is a school he specifically mentioned.
Today the defense attorneys and all three defendants in the case will have a chance to speak in court today. According to Wetzel, when they cross-examine Bowen, they’ll be after as much dirt as possible.
