COLUMBUS, Ohio. – Ohio State men’s golf head coach Jay Moseley announced that both Colin Bowles and Grant Engle have signed national letters of intent to join the program next fall.
“The addition of Colin and Grant to our program is consistent with Ohio State Athletics’ core values; they are reputable, talented young men with passion to succeed athletically, academically and personally,” Moseley said. “I know each of these young men will be assets for our program because I have spent time with their families and they were raised with tremendous leadership qualities. I believe Colin and Grant will both benefit from their development in our program but our program is also going to be better because of these young men. In every way possible Colin and Grant were a great ‘fit’ for our program and we could not be more excited for them to arrive next August.“

“I first remember Colin from the 2014 US Junior Amateur when he was one of the youngest competitors in the field at age 14. He also made national headlines when he shot 56 on his home course in West Virginia and not long after that he and his parents moved to southern Georgia. But the accomplishment that caught my attention the most was Colin’s victory in the 2016 Georgia State Amateur when he defeated the best players in the state and became the second youngest champion of the event- Bobby Jones was the youngest. Colin is a very humble young man but his hunger to compete is fierce.”

“Grant has been fortunate to have a unique perspective on our program having watched his older brother compete as a Buckeye from 2013-17. The Engle’s are great people and loyal Buckeye fans. Grant’s improvement on the golf course during his high school career was consistent with his burning desire to play golf for Ohio State. Grant is an excellent student and is a leader in numerous organizations in high school and his community. His success this past summer on the national scene warranted attention from many respectable programs; however, he chose to be a Buckeye and we are thrilled to be the beneficiary of his decision.”
