An offseason that has been “busy with a lot of hard work” for Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) product Chaz Lowery has also been a successful one, with the 6-4 1/2, 260-pound offensive lineman prospect picking up official offers from East Carolina, Marshall, ODU and Richmond. Lowery has also drawn attention from Duke, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
“[Coaches from Duke, Virginia and Virginia Tech] told me they’d be down very early in my senior season to see me,” Lowery said.
Lowery is pleased with the four schools that have offered and is high on one school in particular, but for now he does not plan to commit in the immediate future.
“Definitely, ECU has caught my attention. It has caught my eye, but I want to make sure I have all my options in front of me,” Lowery said.
“I’m kind of hoping to bide my time. I do have great offers already there, but I’m trying to hold out until I know all of my options.”
Duke’s coaches are keeping in close contact with the Dolphins offensive tackle, who also appears to be firmly on the radar of both in-state FBS programs.
With Tech, “I talked to Coach Newsome before and during the [July 10] camp and I talked to Coach Beamer while I was up there, too,” Lowery said. “Coach Beamer told me I was a player they’ll continue to look at and they would be down to see.

A starter at right tackle last season as a junior, Lowery will move over to left tackle for the upcoming season. In addition to attending numerous camps this spring and summer, Lowery has worked hard in the weight room to improve upper body strength. He is also pleased with what he has shown athleticism-wise, particularly at the aforementioned camps.
“I know that I’m a player that, on paper, I may not look like the most appealing. But once these coaches see me in person, my athleticism shows,” Lowery said....
