West Virginia offensive coordinator Jake Spavital visited neighboring Tennessee on Wednesday, and he was there for a very specific purpose Bolivar (TN) Central quarterback Woodrow Lowe . Spavital had been speaking with Lowe, who also goes by "Trey," for the last couple of weeks. This was his first chance to see him in person, and the immediate result was an offer.
"Coach Spavital evaluated me at practice (Thursday) and I gave him a call after, that's when he told me," said the 6-foot-3, 185-pounder. "They want an athletic guy who can also throw it down the field, and he thought I could fit very well into this class."
The 2018 recruit says he's only slightly familiar with the program, having "played with them on the old NCAA (Football video) games with Pat White and Steve Slaton." He says his research into the school and team really picked up a couple of weeks ago when he started communicating with Spavital, however.
Lowe intends to visit West Virginia, along with several other schools, this summer. He's received offers from Illinois, Memphis, and a few others in recent weeks, with Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Indiana keeping very close tabs. A decision should come "sometime this summer and Lowe will take into account several factors.
"I want to see the academics; that's high on my list," he said. "I'm looking for a great atmosphere to be in, and I want to have a chance to come in and play early."
Lowe claims no favorites at this time. He holds a three-star rating from Scout Recruiting.
