New schools show interest in Rowe

He's helped lead one of the top JC programs in the country to the California JUCO playoffs and Mt. San Antonio LB Alfred Rowe (6-3, 215) is a focused man. First and foremost he's got his attention trained on the Mounties' next opponent -- Allan Hancock -- but he's also got his eyes set on earning a D-1 scholarship and that could be just around the corner.

"Things are going well, we're in the playoffs and that's all we can ask for right now," Rowe said earlier this week. "All we need to do is play our best and I think we have a shot."

Rowe signed with USC after he graduated from Long Beach Poly, but things didn't work out with the Trojans so he made the decision to head to Mt. SAC and he's had a solid season -- posting 70 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 9.5 tackles for loss and one interception from his middle linebacker position.

On the recruiting front Rowe is hearing from schools across the country, but so far none have stepped up with an offer.

"Kansas, Oregon, Oregon State and Middle Tennessee are the ones recruiting me right now," Rowe said. "They've all talked about visits, but they are just waiting on my film and my transcripts."

Rowe will finish his two-year degree in February and he'll have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
