The move does not come as a huge surprise, as Lowe has been battling just to get on the field in both football and baseball at WVU. In two plus years on the gridiron, he played in six games, but had only two appearances at quarterback. In the 2018 Camping World Bowl against Syracuse, he had one rush for nine yards and was 2-2 passing for zero yards. He saw action in four games on special teams in 2019, and had three carries for 12 yards against Oklahoma, while completing two of two passes for seven yards.
Those numbers lead to a bit of an oddity – he’s likely one of the few players to never throw an incomplete pass while playing in multiple games as a quarterback at WVU.
On the baseball field, he had two early season at-bats in 2019, but recorded no other statistics. He redshirted in both sports in 2018.
Prior to this announcement, according to a source close to the situation, Lowe was going to forego work on the football field this spring to concentrate on baseball. He appeared on West Virginia’s pre-season roster, but has since been removed.
That decision would have clearly put him out of any chance to play quarterback for the Mountaineers, as Jarret Doege, Austin Kendall, Garrett Greene, Matt Cavallaro and Trent Jackson will all be on the field for spring practice.
Lowe was added to the transfer portal on Thursday evening, and was listed as a transfer in both sports. He has been removed from both WVU’s football and baseball 2020 rosters.
Lowe expects to graduate this summer, and thus would be immediately eligible in the fall at whatever school he chooses as his transfer destination.
