Recruiting: Is OSU In Lowe's Top Three?

Standout defensive back and all-around athlete Daytawion Lowe (he'll play some on offense this season), of Midwest City (Carl Albert), Okla., was happy to hear about his making All-American status in the newly published edition of SuperPrep magazine.

"That's cool," said Daytawion Lowe, who admitted that recruiting has taken a back seat for now to preparing for his senior season at Class 5A powerhouse Carl Albert. "Practice is going good and we are getting in shape and getting ready for the season. We've got a three-way scrimmage on Friday with Del City and Owasso at our place."

That is some good football as Del City is always full of speed and athletic talent, and Owasso coming down from the Tulsa area has players like offensive guard Brandon Webb (committed to OSU), offensive tackle Gavin Howard (committed to Kansas), and running back Jacques Washington, who rushed for 1,755 yards and 14 touchdowns last season as a junior. That scrimmage gets underway at 7 p.m.

As for recruiting, while Lowe said he has put it on the back burner, the 6-1, 185-pound speedster said he has a big three.

"It's Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Pittsburgh," said Lowe.

When asked if OSU and Tech were still the top two he replied, "no, it's three. Pittsburgh is up there with the other two."

Pittsburgh seems to be recruiting more in Oklahoma and the southwest since former SMU head coach Phil Bennett accepted the job as defensive coordinator for the Panthers.

A decision, which at one time looked like it would be made this summer, has now been put off and it looks like Lowe will ride recruiting right into taking official visits after Carl Albert ends what he hopes will be another state championship campaign.
