2021 PLL College Draft Prospects: Attack

Michael Sowers – Princeton/Duke

Many debated whether or not Sowers would have been the first overall pick last season had he joined the PLL. Instead, he transferred to Duke and has only gotten better while playing for Coach Danowski. There’s not much to be said about Sowers that hasn’t been already said, but he can do it all offensively. After scoring 302 points during four years at Princeton, becoming the Tigers’ all-time leading scorer, Sowers has continued his assault on the NCAA career leader board with 60 points for the Blue Devils moving up to 4th all-time, with the opportunity to pass Connor Fields for third the next time he takes the field. 

Sowers brings speed, a play-making ability and, as he reminded people against Notre Dame, the ability to shoot the ball all wrapped into a perfect little package. He’s PLL-ready and can run the offense at X, while creating opportunities for the rest of whatever attack line he plays with. Sowers creates a matchup problem and will be able to slide right into a top role in the PLL.

Casey Powell’s Take: He’s the closest thing to my brother Mike that I’ve seen. He plays fast as lightning, yet he remains composed under pressure. Sowers is a true offensive quarterback with fantastic vision and unreal change of direction. To think that he will have a better supporting cast at the next level than at Duke is scary, but as a PLL fan, extremely exciting.
