We know what Josh Huff can do coming into his senior season, we know Bralon Addison has a bright future coming up on his sophomore year, so who else is left? Keanon Lowe that’s who! Lowe is coming up on his junior year and has only progressed more and more into his starting role. A 2010 redshirt, Lowe will be looking to make a huge bang as one of the best, if not the best, receivers on the team.
Lowe redshirted his 2010 freshman season to make sure he really understood the playbook and transition smoothly into the nationally recognized Ducks. Lowe began getting playing time in 2011, where he was primarily a special teams guy. He had eight total tackles — six unassisted — and a forced fumble in only nine games. But, we all know special teams isn’t where Lowe thrives (unless he’s returning the ball with his lightning speed), so for 2012 he will see more action at his known and more comfortable position of WR. In 13 games last year, he had a total of 494 all-purpose yards, with almost half of them being from receiving and the rest from kick returns.
So why should we be confident in Keanon Lowe? Keanon isn’t a newbie when it comes to the spotlight, as he attended Jesuit High School in Portland, (one of the top high school programs in the nation), and excelled in his football career there. He’s been waiting for this moment for a long time, and he’s ready to break out of his shell and become the receiver that the Ducks expect him to be. Make sure to keep a high watch for Lowe, as he’s the king when it comes to expecting the unexpected.
