He totaled 67 tackles, three interceptions, and forced six fumbles during his redshirt junior campaign.

A four-star recruit from Bradenton (Fla.) Southeast, Dowling originally signed with Florida in the 2010 class but was released from the team less than a year later by Urban Meyer.

He sat out the 2011 season due to NCAA transfer rules before becoming one of WKU’s top defensive playmakers as a redshirt sophomore.

Dowling led the Hilltoppers with six interceptions and totaled 68 tackles in an all-Sun Belt Conference 2012 season.
