The Arkansas Razorbacks land a cornerback commitment from Frisco (TX) cornerback Chase Lawery. The 6’0″ 180-pound defensive back went public with his announcement via Twitter at 1p.m Thursday. Lowery now becomes the 13th Hog commitment for the Class of 2021.
Lowery, who was offered by the Razorbacks on June 18, chose the Razorbacks over several other finalists like Michigan State, Purdue, Texas Tech, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Memphis, and San Diego State. His offer list also included Arizona, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Washington State, as well as others.
Lowery was recruited to The Hill by first-year cornerbacks coach Sam Carter, who was an All-Big 12 defensive back as a player with TCU. Lowery has not yet made a trip to the Hill but does plan to do so as soon and the Covid-19 pandemic comes to an end. With Lowery not seeing the campus yet, expect to see some big smiles as he walks onto campus and gives a big look at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in person. On top of that the recruit has yet to see the top level expansions and facilities the Razorback Football program has to offer him to keep his game at the top level of play.
As a Junior last fall, Lowery recorded 48 tackles, 4 interceptions, and 8 pass break-ups. A tackle for loss and force fumble on the defensive side of the ball. Also during last fall Lowery played the offensive side of the ball as well. On offense, he added 34 receptions for 758 yards and 7 touchdowns. While in Frisco, Lowery returned two punts, and one kick off return for touchdowns.
According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Lowery is a three-star prospect, the No. 81 cornerback nationally, and the No. 129 player in the state of Texas. 247Sports list him much higher as the No. 54 cornerback and the No. 112 overall prospect in the state of Texas.
Lowery, who played his sophomore season at Plano Prestonwood, was named District 7-5A-II’s MVP last fall. Looking to be an outstanding commit for Coach Sam Pittman and the Hogs, he has a bright future ahead of him on the Hill. Look for Lowery to come in making plays before we know it, along side the growing and talented Class of 2021 coming the Fayetteville.
