Lowe says he's a Husky

One of the top athletes in the northwest gave the Washington Husky football coaches great news this afternoon when Jesuit (Portland) WR/DB Keanon Lowe told them he wanted to be a Husky. Lowe and his family just finished up a visit to Montlake this weekend and that's when they let head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff know of their intentions.

"Everything is good, everything is great actually," a happy Lowe told Dawgman.com shortly after leaving Montlake. "I just talked to coach Sark and told him that I was committing to the University of Washington.

"He was really excited. He got all pumped up and yelled to the rest of the room 'hey everyone, we have a new Husky' so he was real excited and so was my family."

Lowe had long been a fan of the Husky football program and said he had been waiting for the right time to make the call and he decided this was the weekend to do it.

"I really love the coaches and feel they are going to be successful really early on and that's why I decided to just get it done," Lowe said. "I had wanted to commit to them for a while, but I also wanted to make sure I was making the right decision, so I waited and now that it's done I feel great."

The talented athlete chose Washington over offers from Arizona State, BYU, Colorado, Boise State, Stanford, Oregon and Oregon State.

"A lot of schools wanted me at corner, but I wanted to play wide receiver and Washington told me from the beginning that is where they liked me," Lowe said. "I have a real good relationship with coach (Brian) Dougherty and coach (Doug) Nussmeier so that was really important to me."

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

Being that his commitment came so early in the process, one must ask is this a done deal?

"If I could be more than 100% committed, then that is what I am," Lowe said. "I'm excited about everything and think the program is definitely going to make a lot of improvements really early and really soon and I'm excited to be a part of it."
