Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) right tackle Chaz Lowery , a junior, is on the radar of several FBS programs. The 6-5, 265-pound prospect has been invited to camp at Duke, Maryland and Virginia Tech so far, so he’ll have opportunities to impress college coaches and potentially earn some scholarship offers. Lowery was pleased with his junior season performance and eyes a strong offseason.

“I think I had a great year,” said Lowery, who started at right tackle in 2009 after alternating between tackle and guard in 2008. “Working alongside guys like Wes Moulton and Josh Mann, we had a great group of guys. We were able to run the ball. [Ocean Lakes Head] Coach [Chris] Scott would look to me to run on my side. It was a great honor for coach Scott to look to me and trust to run the ball on my side. We could run when the passing game was not there.”

Increasing his strength and improving technique top Lowery’s list of goals for this offseason. College coaches see potential in Lowery, who has only played football for three years.

“My recruiting is just starting to take shape,” Lowery said. “I’ve been talking to coaches. I’ve been up to Virginia Tech three times now. I have not been to UVa, but I want to get there to see what they have to offer. I plan to check out some North Carolina schools this spring. Coach Scott told me that the quarterbacks will get scholarships first and the linemen will get them later. I don’t know when that will come. I’ve been talking to Tech, Duke and other schools. I’ll have to wait and see.”

Virginia coaches stopped by Ocean Lakes recently according to Lowery. Tech coaches have been through as well and have told the talented lineman what they hope to see later in the year.

“They want to see my strength go up. They want to see that increase, and then we’ll see,” said Lowery.

Lowery has family who went to Virginia Tech and he says Tech is his top choice as far as academics are concerned. He wants to major in Pre-Med. He still wants to visit UVa as well and likes new head coach Mike London.

“I think he is a great coach,” Lowery said. “He brings about a more different style than just
