Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes has a pair of lineman that are on the rise heading into their senior year. One of those is offensive tackle Chaz Lowery and the other is offensive center Josh Mann.
Ocean Lakes head coach Chris Scott broke down the latest with Lowery first.
"Interest has picked up for Chaz through the end of the summer," he said. "More schools have been calling about him including Virginia Tech, Duke and Boston College as well as East Carolina still and Marshall. His stock continues to rise."
What are the schools that haven't offered saying?
"They are telling him they plan to continue to recruit him and they just want to see more to see how he handles the size he has put on," he said. "He went from 255 at the end of basketball season to 272 in his final summer camp. He's one of these late bloomers. If he was 295 right now, he would probably have a few more offers, people just want to know if he can get up to that size."
Lowery holds a few offers including East Carolina, Marshall, Old Dominion and Richmond. What's next for him?
"He's just weighing his options and looking to have the best senior year he can have so that he can make the best college decision for his future."
Meanwhile, Mann who holds offers from Old Dominion and Elon is impressing early on in camp.
"He did a little bit of the camp circuit, but since we started a week ago he's been dominating," he said. "He's having a really big-time camp and we're excited about him.
"I think right now for colleges, they want to see how much more aggressive he is this year, if he has that nastiness."
