Selected Penn State over Michigan, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Wisconsin

Bowers played at Kittanning Senior High School for head coach Frank Fabian. Rated as a three-star prospect by all four major recruiting services: ESPN,, and, the 6-foot-4, 255-pound tight end was ranked among the top-25 nationally at his position by ESPN (14th) and 24/ (18th). As a junior, Bowers hauled in 53 passes for a school-record 846 yards to help the Wildcats to a 9-1 overall record and their first undefeated regular season since 1976. He led the team in tackles from his linebacker post and rushed for 314 yards as a junior. As a senior, Bowers tallied 32 receptions for 503 yards and nine touchdowns en route to being named first-team Class AA All-State by the Pennsylvania Football Writers' Association. He was also a first-team All-Allegheny Conference honoree on offense (2013 and 2014) and on defense (2013). Bowers is also a member of the track and field team and owns the school record in shot put.

"Nick played his best in the biggest games. Nick is a defensive nightmare; he is too physical for corners to handle, but also has the ability to run by linebackers in coverage. He is the most dynamic offensive player I have coach in my 14 years, having the athletic ability to play receiver, tight end, running back, and wildcat quarterback in our spread offense."
