Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast defensive end Seyvon Lowry says he received his third verbal offer on Friday.
"FIU is my third offer," Lowry said. "Ole Miss was my first offer and then North Carolina also offered me."
While Lowry got word of Florida International offering him, he has yet to get in contact wit the staff to discuss their interest in him.

"I am actually about to give FIU a call," Lowry said. "I just got a message that told me to call them. So I am going to call them and talk about the offer."
He hasn't remained in regular contact with Ole Miss, having just spoken to them earlier this year when they extended their offer.
"I talked to Coach (Derrick) Nix at Ole Miss a while back," Lowry said. "He just told me a couple months ago that they wanted to offer me. He just told me they saw my film and they were interested in offering me a scholarship."
He has been in recent contact with North Carolina and the Tar Heels have talked with him about the way they would use him if he ended up in Chapel Hill.
"I have talked to the North Carolina assistant coach, his name is Coach (Dan) Disch, and we were talking about the position that I might play for them," Lowry said. "The position is called the bandit. It is some linebacker and some defensive end."
In addition to his offers, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect is hearing from a number of other schools.
"A few schools have shown interest - Alabama, Connecticut, Miami, Michigan State, Rutgers, South Alabama, South Florida, Vanderbilt, and UCF," Lowry said.
He has yet to hit the road for any unofficial visits, but that will change on Saturday.
"I plan on taking my first trip tomorrow to UCF for their junior day," Lowry said. "I don't have anything else scheduled yet. But I do plan on going to North Carolina whenever JoJo (Joseph Jackson) moves in."
At this stage of the process, the Sunshine State product isn't ready to name a leader.
"Not really because I am just kind of new to recruiting and all of this interest," Lowry said. "I don't have a current school that stands out right now."
