Springfield (Pa.) Cardinal O’Hara has been one of the more productive programs in Pennsylvania when it comes to producing talent – especially after former No. 1 player in the nation, Kevin Jones, put the program on the national map.
This year’s top prospect from O’Hara is 6-foot-6, 315-pound offensive tackle Matthew Lowry.
Lowry, who earned first-team all-Catholic, first-team all-city and second-team all-county honors as a junior, has already picked up a scholarship offer from Syracuse. He’s also getting heavy attention from Virginia, Michigan, West Virginia, North Carolina and N.C. State.
“I’m bruising, hustling and aggressive,” Lowry said.
And he hopes to show all of those things at the State College NIKE Training Camp and at Penn State’s camp this summer.
He said the No. 1 thing on his list for a college choice will be if the school can get him a degree. With a 3.2 grade-point average and a 1190 on the SAT, academics are obviously important to Lowry.
