The Little Kid in Him Comes Out!

Keanon Lowe, 5-10, 170 (Portland (Ore.) Jesuit HS) says there was no single factor in his decision to switch from Washington to Oregon. He had been thinking about the Ducks for a long time. In fact since he was a little kid.

"There's not one deciding factor," wrote Lowe in a text to eDuck Sports. "Me and mom just feel like that's the place for me. As a little kid I used to picture myself playing for the Ducks. I'm excited it is going to happen now."

Lowe, is being recruited as a receiver by the Ducks and played in the US Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. Oregon's recruiting class this year has a number of prospects who played in the game. Was that a factor for Lowe?

"No it wasn't a factor," Lowe shared. "I had been thinking about this before I was in San Antonio. Although I am excited to play with Curtis (White), Dior (Mathis) and hopefully Lache (Seastrunk)."
