Growing up in one of the richest talent pools in the country, Miami (Fla.) Columbus linebacker Antonio Lowery is following in the footsteps of some of the great prospects to come out of the Sunshine state.
His offer count grows by the day with in-state powers such as Florida in the scholarship category among others like West Virginia, Ole Miss, Rutgers, Boston College, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia to name a few.
"It's been a lot of waiting and seeing with all of this stuff," Lowery said. "There aren't really any favorites yet, but during basketball season or right before I should have things narrowed down and on to taking visits."
Where those visits will be is still up in the air. However, his unofficial visits and camp trips have been numerous and beneficial. The in-state kid checked out Miami and Rutgers for camps and Florida for a junior day.
Two other regional schools were also going to be stops, but Lowery had to change things up.
"Well, I wanted to make it to Alabama and Georgia, but it just didn't happen," Lowery said. "I may try and make it back there at some point."
Lowrey says a decision could come on an eye-opening trip or it could be a Signing Day trigger in February.
"It's really not about just being at home, but it's just something that reminds me of home," Lowery said. "Whenever I need to get home, I need to be able to get there quickly."
"It's all about the environment for me and how I feel about it when I'm there."
