Slam Dunk Boosts Lowry's Stock

Cardinal Dougherty point guard Kyle Lowry is sitting on four scholarship offers from high-level programs. A December tournament appearance really got things going for him.

Schools Beginning To Make Overtures

Kyle Lowry put up some points at the December Slam Dunk To The Beach. As a result, a number of schools put him high on their recruiting lists.

"After the Slam Dunk To The Beach," Lowry said, "I became a real hot target. I like the attention."

So far, he's been offered by Xavier, Pittsburgh, Charlotte and Connecticut. He's hearing from Syracuse, Miami, Ohio State and Rutgers.

Despite the attention, Lowry isn't ready to take visits. "I'm not taking any visits this year. I'm going to take them all [in the fall]. I haven't taken the SAT yet."

Lowry said that he'll pay particular attention to graduation rates and how many players the school has in the NBA, but he said those won't be the deciding factors. "The coaching staff will probably be the biggest thing and the school [itself], period."
