From Auburn Knight to Fighting Illini. Auburn’s Vederian Lowe verbally committed to the University of Illinois on Sunday.
The announcement came after Lowe participated in the football program’s ‘Big Man’ on campus Sunday afternoon.
The 6-foot-5, 300 pound prospect did receive interest from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northwestern, Stanford, and Missouri but elected to state in-state and play for new head coach Lovie Smith.
Lowe is the fourth in-state prospect to commit to the Illini this year.
