Lowe Contemplates Summer Decision

Last month Brownwood High offensive guard Stavion Lowe made it known that his process was heating up, and he would be taking all five of his official visits in the fall and possibly coming down to a February Signing Day decision.

After a standout junior season, Lowe (6-4, 295) landed offers from a number of the nation's top universities, including Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Yet, as the summer draws on, Lowe is taking a new stance to his recruitment process, one which does not include taking any official visits in the fall.

"I am getting ready shut things down here pretty soon," Lowe said. "I took a vacation with my family this week and just got away from everything. I think in the next couple of weeks I am going to make my decision public."

While Lowe said that LSU, Auburn and Oklahoma are on the top of his list, the Tigers of LSU seem to be recruiting the nation's No. 10 ranked offensive guard the hardest.

"My family and I really like LSU," Lowe said. "I have gotten a chance to talk to coach [Larry] Porter a lot, and my family feels really comfortable around him."

Before Lowe's family got a chance to check the LSU campus out for themselves, the Brownwood-native brought the Tiger's campus to them.

"On my last visit I brought my video camera with me and just filmed the entire time," Lowe said with a laugh. "I just wanted my parents to see what the campus was all about, and that was the best way."

Before Lowe makes his decision final, he looks to continue to build upon his bond with offensive line coach Greg Studrawa.

"I want to get a chance to talk with coach Stud a little bit more," Lowe said. "I would be spending all my time with him if I chose LSU, so he is someone I want to get a little more conversation in with."

With Lowe's senior season approaching quickly, the chance to put his recruitment behind him is something that the four-star is looking forward to.

"It's not as if I am tired of it all," Lowe said. "I just feel like if I have found that place I am comfortable with, then I am just going to get it out of the way. I am ready to focus on my team and getting us, hopefully, to the state championship."

With a decision on the horizon, the defending national champions look to be sitting in good shape.

"I would say LSU is in a real good position," Lowe said.
