Lowe discusses OU trip

He already has an offer on the table from Mike Sherman and Texas A&M, so what did his trip to Oklahoma do for him. Did the Sooners offer the Brownwood offensive lineman this weekend? Aggie Websider's David Sandhop visits with Lowe about his visit, where he plans on visiting in the coming weeks and where he stands in the recruiting process.

Brownwood offensive lineman Stavion Lowe has seen interest from both in-state and out-of-state college coaches increase in recent weeks. Lowe first received an offer from Auburn in early February, followed by a Texas A&M offer after his second junior day visit to College Station in mid-February. Since then, Arkansas and Kansas have added their names to the offer list along with serious interest from Texas Tech and Oklahoma.

The 6-foot-5, 294-pound lineman, rated No. 54 in last month's M&W/Aggie Websider Top 100, made his first trip up to Norman last weekend to see the campus and meet with the Sooner coaches. So what were his impressions of the trip?

"I liked it," Lowe said. "I thought it was real good. I got to watch a spring practice and it was intense like I expected. The campus was nice and the facilities are great. It was a little cold up there, but not too bad."

When asked to compare the campus, facilities, and coaches at OU to other visits, Lowe didn't see much difference from his junior day experiences at Texas A&M.

"We stopped through Baylor, but A&M is really the only other place I've attended a junior day. Compared to A&M, OU seemed about the same. Both are good schools and they have top-notch facilities," Lowe said. "Coach Stoops is a very aggressive, intense coach. You could see it at practice. I'm sure Coach Sherman is that way too, but I haven't seen him coach yet. Overall, there was a lot of difference in both places."

The one big difference though between OU and Texas A&M is that the Aggies offered a scholarship and the Sooners did not.

"OU did not offer this weekend," Lowe said. "They said they wanted to stay in touch and they are very interested. The staff is still evaluating offensive line prospects."

Lowe will now focus his attention on taking trips to Auburn, and then will attend Texas A&M's spring game in April. He is also trying to schedule a visit to Texas Tech.

"I probably won't go anywhere until my Auburn trip on March 29 for their spring game," Lowe said. "Then I'm going to Texas A&M's spring game on April 19. I still need to go see Tech, but I don't see that happening until after the A&M visit."

Lowe says he's still open right now and wants to see what each school has to offer before narrowing down his list. He'd like to make a decision before his senior season if he's ready. The Brownwood native indicated that staying close to home would be a bonus, but that he wouldn't have a problem going further away from home if the right opportunity came along.
