During his time with the Gators, he made three catches against Vanderbilt and two against Oregon State as part of his seven-catch 2022 season, primarily playing on special teams. An injury sidelined him for most of the 2023 season, limiting him to two games with no catches. In December, he announced his departure from the Gators and entered the transfer portal.

After considering options, including an official visit to Ole Miss, Chiaokhiao-Bowman decided to take his talents to Houston to play for the Rice Owls in the 2024 season.
