Lowe has Washington in his sights

He's one of the top athletes in the northwest and Jesuit (Portland) WR/DB Keanon Lowe has plenty of schools who have their eyes on his talent. One of those is the University of Washington and the talented athlete from the Rose City said the Huskies are near the top of his list. Dawgman.com caught up with Lowe recently and he updated us on things including what his plans are this summer...

Lowe is seeing interest from across the west and he sports offers from Arizona State, BYU, Colorado, Boise State, Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State and Washington.

He had hoped to take in Washington's spring game, but was unable to because it conflicted with a track meet for his school.

"I was real disappointed I couldn't get up there for the game, but when you have track, almost every weekend has meets so you sorta have to schedule around those," Lowe said. "It's only three hours from home though and it's an easy drive right up I-5, so I'm going to visit them this summer at some point."

The Huskies were one of the first offers for the talented athlete and he said their offer excites him because of where they want him to play.

"One of the big reasons I like them is because they want me at wide receiver," Lowe said. "There are a couple of schools that have offered me at wide receiver, but with my relationship with coach (Doug) Nussmeier and coach (Brian) Dougherty, Washington is a special offer because they are such great guys.

"I talk to them a lot and I feel I have a great relationship with the staff up there and that is going to be a deciding factor in where I end up.

"I really need to make sure the coaches are people I can feel comfortable with and who will help me both on and off the field. I feel Washington's coaches could do that if I went there."

Lowe visited Washington in March for Washington's junior day and came away impressed with what he saw.

"When I left there, they were my leader," Lowe said. "I'm open though, so I don't really have a leader, but man, they made a real impression on me.

"The entire staff is so energetic and you can tell they love the game and they love to coach and get the most out of their players. It was a lot of fun."

Lowe has a connection to BYU because his uncle Jaime Hill is the defensive coordinator for the Cougars, but he said they too are recruiting him at wide receiver.

"I went down there and checked them out," Lowe said. "It was fun just getting to meet the coaches and talk to them about things. I really liked the school and what it represents."

Lowe said he plans to visit Washington, Oregon, Oregon State, Cal and UCLA this summer.

"Cal and UCLA haven't offered, but they are recruiting me pretty hard," Lowe said. "I definitely want to get back up to Washington and then of course I want to check out Oregon and Oregon State.

"I'd like to decide before my season starts, but if I don't I'll wait until after my season so I can take all my visits. Honestly it's mainly about whether I feel comfortable making a decision or not. If I do great, if not, I'm not going to stress about it."

As a junior last year, Lowe hauled in 45 receptions for 800 yards and rushed for 200 yards as well. He also amassed 16 touchdowns.

We'll be keeping tabs on Lowe as recruiting continues to progress for the talented athlete from the Beaver State and we'll update news as it changes.
