High school career
Bowman attended Grapevine High School in Grapevine, Texas. As a junior, Bowman was elected the District 8-5A Overall MVP in 2016. In his senior year, Bowman threw for 3,570 yards and 38 touchdowns. He was rated as a three star recruit by both 247Sports.com and Rivals.com. Bowman committed to Texas Tech on June 15, 2017 over schools such as Ole Miss, Arkansas, Missouri and Houston.
Bowman entered his freshman year at Texas Tech in 2018 in a three-way battle for the starting position over junior McLane Carter and sophomore Jett Duffey, with Carter being named the starter for the week 1 game against Ole Miss. Bowman entered the game in the 2nd quarter after Carter suffered a high ankle sprain. Bowman went 29/49 for 273 yards with a touchdown in the 27–47 loss. Bowman was named the starter for the week 2 match-up against Lamar, completing 22-of-25 passes for 282 yards with 2 touchdowns, only playing the first half of the game. A week later on September 15, Bowman had a historic game against Houston, completing 43-of-59 passes for 605 yards with five touchdowns in the 63–49 win. Bowman's 605 yards set a Big 12 record for most passing yards in a game by a freshman. On September 29 against West Virginia, Bowman left the game right before halftime after being sandwiched between two defenders with an apparent upper-body injury; it was later revealed that Bowman had suffered a partially collapsed lung. Bowman returned from injury on October 20 for the Red Raiders' game against Kansas; Bowman finished 36/46 for 408 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. On November 3 against Oklahoma, Bowman left the game at halftime for an unknown reason. It was later revealed that he had a re-occurrence of a partially collapsed lung; Bowman was discharged from the hospital on November 7. Bowman finished his freshman year with 227 completions out of 327 attempts for 2,638 yards with 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.
