Lowery, 6-foot-3 and 330 pounds, landed several offers during the early part of the recruiting process and many thought he was a lock to become a Miami Hurricane.
After the Canes landed a couple other defensive tackle prospects, his planned announcement back on August 1 was pushed back. At the time, Lowery said he wasn't sure when he'd make a final decision.
He told us a few days ago that Miami is no longer in the picture for him and on Thursday, he decided to make the commitment.
"I like Rutgers a lot," he said. "I had a good visit there. My brother's there and I think it's a good program."
The talented big man, a three-star prospect on Scout.com, isn't completely done with the recruiting process yet.
"I still plan on taking my visit to Florida next month," he said.
