Lowe plans on camping in Lubbock and Stillwater

It is certainly no secret in the world of those who follow Texas Tech football that the Red Raiders' stockpile of safeties is going to be plundered quite severely by graduation following this season, rendering it a serious position of need in this year's class.

Even though the Red Raiders have already snagged commitments from Daniel Cobb and JUCO Ryan Clark, they are still looking to add one more safety to this year's class. One of the candidates they have their eyes set on is four-star Oklahoma native Daytwion Lowe.

However, Tech isn't the only school hot on Lowe's trail.

"Aw man, this spring's been very good," he explained. "It's been a little hectic though with track and spring ball and all. There have been just a bunch of schools that came through here this spring, but it's been all good."

Lowe, who holds offers from schools like Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Kansas, Nebraska, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and others, says the most important thing about spring football in his eyes was not the recruiting hoopla, but rather what his team accomplished.

"I mean, it was nice and all having so many coaches around," he said. "But honestly, I'm more concerned about being the best team we can be, and I feel like we got a lot accomplished this spring, so I feel really good about that."

One of the things that's kept Lowe busy this spring has been mastering a new offensive scheme. Even though Lowe is being recruited primarily as a defensive back, in a testament to just how athletic he really is, he'll be spending quite a bit of time next season splitting carries with fellow four-star prospect David Oku.

"We're revealing a new offense this year," said Lowe. "So I had to learn the whole thing because I'm going to be playing a lot of running back next year I guess. So I had to learn all the new plays and get all the new stuff down, because it was just all brand new to me."

And when he wasn't busy learning the new scheme, he was busy making headlines with his speed.

"Track went well, I ended up getting runner up in the 400 (49.6) and then I got 6th in the 200," he explained. "But I should have come in third, but I was still just so tired from the 400. I guess there was a big storm, so they ran the meet real fast, so as soon as I crossed the line from the quarter they were lining us up for the 200. I didn't get to stretch or re-warmup or anything, I just had to go, but it's all good."

Though Lowe is currently unsure of his summer plans, he does know that he'll be attending an Under Armour camp in early June and hopes to make it out to camps at Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.
