The Arizona Wildcat program definitely has momentum and under the guidance of new head coach Mike Stoops they are showing that as a staff they are formidable recruiters and talent evaluators. If Stoops and company can win some this season the Wildcats will be a program on the fast track.
The latest verbal commitment comes from offensive tackle Jordan Lowe (6-4, 305, 5.4) from Peoria (Ariz.) Centennial.
The Wildcats want to do a good job recruiting the home state of Arizona and landing Lowe is a step in the right direction.
Lowe has high ceiling and hasn’t even begun to hit stride to where his potential could go.
Lowe started his junior season weighing 360 pounds and he worked his tail off to get his weight down to 305. That alone gives a great indication of Lowe’s desire to be good and his discipline.
In an interview with GOAZCATS.com’s Chris Bonney, Lowe said, “I was already decided and I just knew that I wanted to go to U of A. I have been waiting for them to offer so I could commit. I just knew that I wanted to go there all along, pretty much since their junior day and all the way through their camp in June.”
In an earlier interview with Rivals.com Centennial head coach Richard Taylor said, “Jordan came into school as an undisciplined freshman. The light has turned on for Jordan and he has worked himself into a legitimate D-I prospect.”
“At the end of Jordan’s junior season when we ran (Terry) Longbons behind Jordan there were times that he didn’t get touched until he was in the defensive backfield,” Taylor said. “Jordan is a great run and he has good feet for a big man.”
Now Lowe can go about recruiting his teammate running back Terry Longbons for the Wildcats.
Longbons is one of the best running backs on the west coast for the class of 2005.
Nice catch for the Wildcats.
