Three In The Hunt For Lowry

Kyle Lowry and his pal Shane Clark (2005) visited Villanova this past weekend. Here's the latest on a potential McDonald's All-American point guard.

The ever-changing saga known as the recruitment of Kyle Lowry took a stop in Philadelphia last weekend as the guard checked out the Villanova campus officially.

"He said it was cool and that he had a nice time," Lonnie Lowry, Kyle's brother said. No commitment was made to the Wildcats at this time and it appears as though Lowry is going to continue to look around.

"What I'm thinking is that he's going to take his visit to Arkansas and his visit to Pittsburgh and if one of those places blew him away he might say he'd go there. If not, he might even let a couple of other schools come in."

Arkansas, according to Lonnie, is trying to get him onto campus for Midnight Madness. Pittsburgh's visit could come the following weekend.

As it stands right now, Villanova, Arkansas and Pittsburgh are the main teams in the running for his services. We have Lowry ranked No. 30 in the country. He led his AAU team to a pair of major titles this spring and summer and was MVP of the Three Stripes and Spiece Run ‘n Slam.

"Kyle knows how to win. That's something I can't say for a lot of guards in this country. I'd put it in his hands and say you got to go win me a game. Dwight Howard is the best player in the country but he can't come down and make a play. If you've got good guards you can win. With somebody like Kyle he just makes it real easy."
