Jared Lowery starting to schedule visits

Once his team plays in the championship, two star lineman Jarel Lowery plans on scheduling his visits. "Maryland first and I'll go from there," Lowery said. Come see what he has to say about Rutgers and his other favorite schools.

Jarel Lowery's favorite schools consist of Maryland, Rutgers, Cincinnati, and Boston College. He hasn't planned any visits with schools yet but plans to real soon. "Nothing has been set up yet, but I'm going to start after this week," Lowery said. "Maryland first and I'll go from there."

On Maryland, the Paterson Catholic offensive tackle/ defensive end said, "I like the whole atmosphere there. The team seems all-together, and I like the players and the coaches. I also have family that lives in the area."

Rutgers is also on his radar but he hasn't received an offer from the Scarlet Knights yet. "I've been there a few times and I like that it's in-state," the two star prospect said. "I know a couple of people that go to the school and I've spoken to the coaches. I've spoken to coach Jackson who has visited my school, and coach Susan when I was at the Norfolk State game. I was at the game because I knew Markeece Preston from Norfolk State and Al-Ghaffaar from Rutgers. As a team, Rutgers plays together, they gel and they have good chemistry."

The 6-foot-2 292 pound lineman hasn't been able to see Cincinnati yet but knows freshman defensive back Tahree McQueen and freshman wide receiver Orion Woodard. "I played in the same league as [them]," he said. "I haven't spoken to them in a while though."

With Boston College, Lowery said, "the coach has been up here and I've spoken to him and it was good. I could see myself going on a visit up there and liking it."

Those might not be the only schools in the hunt for Lowery's services though. "My coach tells me that they're some other schools in the mix but I don't know who they are yet."

What will factor into the versatile lineman's decision will be his chemistry with the coaches. "That will play a major part," he said. "I also want to have a good feeling with the team and be able to fit in there. I want to go to a place where I can mature as an athlete and as a person."

Paterson Catholic will play in the championship on Friday. "The season is going great," he said. "We've been doing what we planned on doing and we're working together."
