Grandson of Alabama great Woodrow Lowe commits, via Twitter video, to West Virginia

Woodrow Lowe III is headed to West Virginia.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound quarterback, who was born in Tuscaloosa, made the announcement on Twitter, via a two-minute video.

In the video, he paid homage to his family, including his grandfather, one of only two Alabama players to be named a three-time All-American.

Lowe, who goes by Trey, will be a part of the Class of 2018 out of Bolivar (Tenn.) Central.

“My family has always taught me the value of hard work and to be humble,” he said in the video.

“I’m grateful for going through this process, visiting schools, meeting coaches and learning about each and every program. I want to thank all the coaches that believed in me, believed I could contribute to their program.

“After a lot of thought and prayer and talking with my parents I’ve decided to attend to West Virginia University.”¬†

Lowe lived in Tuscaloosa until he was 6. He moved to Columbus, Ga., where he started playing football at the age of 8. He then moved to Memphis in the sixth grade.

247 Sports ranks Lowe as a three-star prospect. He chose the Mountaineers over Illinois, North Carolina, Houston, Southern Miss, Memphis and Arkansas State.

Lowe’s grandfather, Woodrow Lowe, is in the College Football Hall of Fame after three All-American years as a linebacker at Alabama (1972-1975) under Bear Bryant and a 10-year career in the NFL with the Chargers.
