Lowe, who will be a redshirt sophomore, also announced his decision Thursday through Twitter. He plans to graduate from WVU this summer and then become a graduate transfer, with three years of eligibility remaining. Lowe will be graduating with an undergraduate degree in athletic coaching education in just two years. He also received honors in athletics by being named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll – which honors those with a 3.0 GPA or higher – and the Garrett Ford Academic Honor Roll.

At age 18, the native of Collierville, Tennessee, announced his commitment to the Mountaineers as a two-sport athlete in football and baseball.
During the 2018 season, Lowe redshirted but saw action on seven plays against Syracuse in the Camping World Bowl, completing 2-of-2 passes for 0 yards and had a nine-yard run.
In 2019, Lowe added depth at quarterback and saw action in five games including against Oklahoma and at Baylor. He was also used on special teams.
This year, Lowe was expected to be a backup with senior Austin Kendall and junior Jarret Doege expected to compete for the starting job this spring. Freshman quarterback Garrett Greene has also been added to the Mountaineers roster, available for practice this spring.
