Lowe Scores 37 in front of Rutgers Head Coach

Ewing (N.J.) 2015 shooting guard Trey Lowe took an unofficial Saturday visit to Rutgers, and it was followed up by an in-person visit from head coach Eddie Jordan at his playoff game. Lowe scored 37 points in his sectional title win, and added an offer from Seton Hall as well. Lowe grabbed a Rutgers offer the next morning.

Ewing (N.J.) 2015 shooting guard Trey Lowe had a fun week when it comes to basketball.

The action started Friday when Lowe scored 42 points in the sectional semi-final and continued Monday with a 37-point night in the title game.

The 6-foot-5 shooting guard received a Seton Hall offer after the big night "I'm really starting to feel that sense of accomplishment," Lowe said. "Things are going well for me. I'm trying to live out my dream of playing college basketball. I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing and the hard work won't stop."

Rutgers head coach Eddie Jordan saw the 37-point night in-person, alongside Seton Hall and Drexel coaches. The Scarlet Knights followed through with a verbal scholarship offer the next morning.

"Right now I'm trying to build a relationship with the Rutgers coaches," Lowe said. "I really like (assistant) coach (Kyle) Triggs and coach Jordan. I'm really starting to like Rutgers a lot."

Lowe is a pure scorer at the high school level, but said his size and physicality attracted Rutgers.

Lowe added that he saw the role J.J. Moore played for Rutgers this season, and could bring similar results. Lowe saw Moore score 21 points while at the Saturday game against Cincinnati.

"They said I'm the type of guard they want," he said. "I play multiple positions and I can get the job done. That's the kind of person they need.

"I always picture myself playing in certain roles in games. I watched a lot of the kid J.J. Moore, and I see what Kadeem Jack does. He plays inside and outside."

Lowe enjoyed his overall visit at Rutgers, and hopes to make a return trip before the start of his senior year.

"It was a nice visit," Lowe said. "I didn't get to go around the campus this time, but I liked all of the coaches. I got to see the basketball game and had a good talk with them. It was a very good visit.

"I learned a lot. They played real tough defense. They like to pressure the ball a lot and they run a lot of switches. They move the ball around a lot. I think they are a very good team. Period."

Seton Hall is the newest offer for Lowe, who also has offers from Temple, Fordham, Rider, Robert Morris and others.
