VCU makes final four list of top-100 guard, Trey Lowe
Highly sought after 6’5 shooting guard, Trey Lowe, took to Twitter last night to announce he’s narrowed his list of schools to four: VCU, SMU, Temple and A-10 rival, Saint Joseph’s.

The Ewing, NJ native has seen his stock continue to rise this summer while playing with AAU club, Team Final, alongside fellow VCU target, Levan “Shawn” Alston.
ESPN describes Lowe as a “late blooming guard with a ton of upside. He has size and length alike in the backcourt and shows athletic flashes making a quick play off the dribble or finishing with body control up around the rim. He’s not apprehensive to play in contact around the rim and will even stick his nose into traffic to dig out an offensive rebound. He shoots the ball with deep range and is capable of getting hot from behind the three-point line. His size and length allows him to get a lot of steals and deflections on the defensive end as well.”
Lowe led his Ewing squad to a 27-5 record while averaging 27.8 points per game this past season before averaging 32.2 points per game in six state tournament games.
VCU will look to sign a strong 2015 class after landing the 14th-ranked 2014 class according to ESPN, highlighted by top-50 wing, Terry Larrier (No.43), as well as two top-100 bigs in Mike Gilmore (No.77) and Justin Tillman (No.97). VCU has landed at least two ESPN top-100 players in their last two classes and will look to do so again with a number of high level players currently considering a college experience in havoc.
VCU’s ability to bring highly rated talent continues to grow since the Rams historic 2011 Final 4 run and Shaka Smart and Co. seem to be on their way to another nationally-ranked class that will be the first to enjoy what will be a brand new state-of-the-art $25 million practice facility scheduled to open when the 2015 class gets to Richmond, VA.
