Another Lineman Gone

Offensive lineman Stavion Lowe has become the seventh name dropped from the LSU roster this summer. The Brownwood, Texas native never played a snap with the Tigers. The news comes just days after fellow 2009 signee Chris Garrett asked to be released from the program.

With the news of Chris Garrett’s departure from the LSU program comes another hit to the offensive side – and another name taken from the offensive line.

On Monday morning LSU Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette confirmed that redshirt freshman Stavion Lowe has left the program.

The 6-foot-4, 295-pounder joined the Tigers as part of the 2009 class.

“I felt like it was time to move into a different direction,” said Lowe. “It wasn’t a medical thing or anything like that. It was just a decision I wanted to make.”

Back home in Brownwood, Lowe will now begin the process of choosing a new college destination.

“I am in the process of talking to schools right now,” he said. “I think I might stay in D-I and just sit out a year. I figure I might as well go somewhere and learn the program. When that first year is up, I will be familiar.”

Lowe joins Chris Garrett, John Williams, Jhyryn Taylor, Kyle Prater, Thomas Parsons and Clay Spencer on the list of Tigers that parted ways with LSU over the spring and summer.
