Lineman commits to Cats

Arizona's trend of early c commitments continued on Monday with their seventh known verbal commitment. The Wildcat headed up to Phoenix to formally offer a scholarship and left with an offensive lineman.

Peoria (Ariz.) Centennial offensive lineman Jordan Lowe did a great job at the Arizona one-day camp and it paid off. It took a number of weeks, but the Arizona coaching staff decided to formally extend an offer on Monday.

The coaches met with the Centennial coaches and Lowe to announce the scholarship, but the 6-4, 295-pound blocker quickly gave them a commitment.

"He's really excited," said his mother Cynthia Lowe. "We're so happy, there's no words to describe how thrilled we are."

Lowe had a very good one-day camp and turned some heads, despite being hampered with a hamstring injury. He had trimmed down some and was much quicker that he was his junior year where he won first team all-region and honorable mention all-state honors. He showed a mean streak, which had to impress the coaches.

He was a high school tackle and played every line position at the camp. He projects as a guard at the college level.

Lowe is 295 pounds, but still has a lot of room to bulk up. He fits the mold of tall, athletic linemen with room to grow that the Wildcats are trying to draw. At the one-day camp he showed great toughness and quick feet.

He joins Eben Britton as prep offensive linemen who have committed to the program this summer. He is one of six high school and seven overall known commitments to Mike Stoops and the staff.
