Trey Lowe, the Redshirt Freshman from Collierville, Tennessee, is currently the 3rd string quarterback for the West Virginia Mountaineers behind starter Austin Kendall and backup Jarret Doege.
During his high school career, Lowe finished as the all-time passing leader at Bolivar High with 5,568 yards and 53 passing touchdowns and he rushed for 25 career touchdowns and had 78 total touchdowns
Lowe is an exceptional athlete, but many have questioned Lowe’s ability to throw the ball downfield. During his brief time last season and the downs he’s played this year, he has not been given the opportunity to throw the ball, which has led to questions whether he was a capable passer or not.
That is until former West Virginia wide receiver Ricky Johns, who recently entered the transfer portal, posted a video from a WVU practice revealing Trey Lowe’s arm is an absolute weapon and his ability to throw downfield should not be questioned:

Although this is just practice and it’s unclear who is playing defensively, Trey Lowe can absolutely throw the ball downfield and he put the ball precisely where it needed to be to be caught by the wide receiver. Of course Austin Kendall has struggled mightily to lead receivers and complete passes downfield during West Virginia’s first nine games of the season so far.
Hopefully Trey Lowe remains in Morgantown and continues to grow within Neal Brown’s system because he clearly has the talent to be a truly great quarterback for the Mountaineers!
