Lowe Takes Another Look At Auburn

Standout offensive tackle Stavion Lowe talks recruiting, his busy travel schedule, and his latest visit to Auburn.

Brownwood, Tex.--Four-star offensive lineman Stavion Lowe has made no bones about his interest in the SEC and that continued last week when he made trips to LSU, Alabama and Tennessee to check out their programs.

While making his road trip, he also found time to make another unofficial visit to Auburn on Saturday night to get another look at the Tigers. He says it was just a chance to give him more information for when he makes his decision.

"I just wanted to come back and see everything once again," Lowe tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I just want to make a solid decision. It's always good to come back and see one of the first places to offer me. I just went back to see the sights.

"It's always good to see as much as you can," he adds. "I'm trying to learn a lot about every school. I learn by making more than one trip besides for a spring game. I get to see the upside and downside and just down time. I think it's a plus to see a school more than once."

Up to 21 scholarship offers, the 6-4, 295 Lowe is considered one of the top offensive line prospects in the country for the 2009 signing class. While his choices are almost unlimited, Lowe says seeing four of the colleges he's interested in one just one trip gives him a chance to compare the pros and cons of each.

"To see the schools helps me evaluate them," he says. "There are so many things out there that you have to actually go out and see them. I don't think five official visits would do it for me so I'm trying to see as much as possible."

While there is no question Lowe still remains open, there is also little doubt that the Auburn Tigers are a school of great interest to the Texas tackle. A visitor for the A-Day game, Lowe says his second trip to the Plains gave him an even better feel for the Tigers.

"One thing I like is the family environment and a good relationship with the players and coaches," Lowe says. "One thing I like is there's not too much (in the way of distractions), but you can do some things if you want. You can actually concentrate and focus on football and winning. Auburn is just a good spot. They are good in all sports. It's a good environment."

Not putting a timetable on his decision, Lowe says he plans to take everything in and not put pressure on himself to make a choice before a certain date. With that being said, he notes that when he feels the moment is right he'll be ready to make the call.

"I'll do it whenever it hits me really," Lowe says. "I have said in a couple of interviews that I would wait until after my five officials. I have been feeling lately that when it hits me is when I'll make that phone call."
