Las Vegas: Wyatt Lowell
There weren’t many college coaches heading to Gilbert (Ariz.) last season to check out 6-foot-9, 220-pound 2016 post Wyatt Lowell. “I think I was too soft,” Lowell said. “I wasn’t aggressive enough and I’m starting to learn to play harder and tougher.” That change has made a major difference in Lowell’s game – and his recruitment. He’s a terrific shooter that can really drain three-pointers but also has the footwork and size to score inside. “I think my game is a little different than anyone else,” Lowell said. “I’m tall, I can dribble and I can shoot. I can also play in the post; I do it all. “I like looking at my defender and figuring out what he can’t guard. I’ll take a bigger defender and take him off the dribble and a smaller defender and post him up. That’s my game.” Lowell, who plans on taking an LDS mission after high school, holds offers from Oklahoma State, Utah Valley, Northern Colorado, Lehigh and UC Davis. California, Iowa and BYU are showing interest. The Oklahoma State offer was a big deal for Lowell. “They’re a great program and really focus on player development, which I’m excited about,” he said. “But I think they’re a great program all around.” The rising senior wants to make sure he has a good bond with the other guys on his team in college. “Teammates are important,” Lowell said. “I want a good bond with my teammates; I don’t want to be with knuckleheads. I want to be at a winning program and be a good piece. I’d prefer closer to home but if not, that’s fine.”
