On May 14, Clemson defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks and offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell traveled to Bolivar (Tenn.) High School to scout 2018 dual-threat quarterback Woodrow Lowe III, the grandson of former Alabama great and College Football Hall of Fame inductee Woodrow Lowe.
Lowe III’s father, Woodrow Lowe Jr., who was a graduate assistant at Alabama and is now the head coach at Bolivar, talked to The Clemson Insider last week about Clemson’s visit to the school.
TCI followed up with Lowe III yesterday for his own perspective on Clemson coming to watch him.
“I’m a fan of Clemson and what they’re doing with their football program,” he said. “I’m honored that they would stop by my school.”
Lowe III, like many others, looks up to Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson. Like Watson, Lowe III prefers to hang in the pocket and pass from it, but isn’t hesitant to utilize his legs that make him additionally dangerous for opposing defenses.
“I’m a pocket-passing quarterback that can also run,” Lowe III said. “Deshaun Watson is one of my favorite college quarterbacks. He has taken his game to another level, and that makes it really difficult for teams to stop him.”
Lowe III has a busy summer in store. Attending the Dabo Swinney Football Camp at Clemson in June is one of the items on his agenda.
“I plan on visiting five school camps: Alabama, Clemson, Ole Miss, Memphis and Southern Mississippi,” Lowe III said. “I was also invited to the Rivals 250 Underclassmen (Challenge on June 12 in Atlanta), so I will be going to that as well.”
Lowe III has offers from Memphis, Southern Miss and Alcorn State, with more sure to come. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder also plays baseball at Bolivar.
