Brian Bowen, the former Louisville signee alluded to prominently in the federal investigation into fraud and corruption in college basketball recruiting, has been invited to the NBA combine, his attorney confirmed to

Bowen, currently enrolled at South Carolina and awaiting clearance from the NCAA regarding his eligibility, received the invitation Friday, attorney Jason Setchen said.

“He’s excited he was selected,” Setchen said of the combine, scheduled for May 16-20 in Chicago. “He’s appreciative of the opportunity to show what he can do.”

A 6-7 wing from La Porte, Ind., Bowen has declared for the draft but hasn’t hired an agent. Setchen is representing Bowen as he deals with the NCAA fallout from the FBI investigation that identified the former McDonald’s All-American in U.S. Department of Justice charging documents as “Player-10.”

The Department of Justice has accused two Adidas executives, an agent runner and a financial adviser of funneling $100,000 to Bowen's father to get him to persuade his son to sign with Louisville and hire the agent and financial adviser when he turns pro.

Louisville admitted that it was "University-6" in the court documents, implicating Bowen. The university eventually fired coach Rick Pitino and AD Tom Jurich as fallout from the situation. Bowen has maintained that he knew nothing of the payments to his father.

Players must decide whether they will remain in the NBA Draft pool by 11:59 p.m. ET May 30.
