Lowe Extremely Interested in Terps

Grassfield junior running back Vincent Lowe hopes to receive two ACC offers in particular

Vincent Lowe is very excited in how this season has gone thus far. He has played pretty well on the field and Grassfield is 7-0 so all in all it has been a good start for Lowe.

It may surprise many people what the 5-foot-8 junior running back tried to improve upon the most this offseason. It wasn't any technical skill like strength or speed but rather his composure.

“I've been working on keeping my head on right and keeping my composure down. I've been maturing not overreacting to late hits,” Lowe said.

While composure was the main thing Lowe wanted to improve on, Lowe still has the advantage of his speed. Lowe says his 40-yard dash time is in about the 4.2 or 4.3 area.

“I'm shifty, not as shifty as Isaiah (Harper) but I get downhill fast,” Lowe said.

Harper is Lowe's backfield teammate at Grassfield. Many people would expect them to go their separate ways after high school due to the fact they play the same position and are both quick running backs. However, Lowe doesn't necessarily see it that way.

“It won't be who's going to start if you have two great athletes why not use them both,” Lowe said

Lowe currently holds offers from Old Dominion and James Madison, but expressed a lot of interest in the University of Maryland and Virginia Tech.

In regards to Maryland, Lowe really likes their facilities and recent play.

“I enjoy their facilities and I came up a lot. They take of everything and are organized. They just beat Virginia and they are balling right now they're doing a great job,” Lowe said.

Lowe will be in attendance at Byrd Field on November 17 when the Terrapins take on the Florida State.

Lowe wants to visit Virginia Tech again and a big reason why Lowe really likes Virginia Tech is because he tries to model his game after current Virginia Tech running back and his best friend J.C. Coleman. Coleman was the ACC rookie of the week this past week after carrying the ball 13 times for 183 yards.

“We had the same trainer so while working out with him he always tried to push me,” Lowe said.

Lowe also tries to pattern his game to two small, successful running backs in the NFL, Ray Rice and Maurice Jones-Drew.

“I'm not going to get much taller and I'm going to use what I have right now,” Lowe said.

Distance is not really a factor for Lowe as in addition to Maryland, Virginia Tech, Old Dominion and James Madison; Lowe has Cincinnati on his radar as well.

“I just want to win. I've been winning all my life and I want to keep doing that,” Lowe said.
