Liberty has picked up a commitment from UTEP’s top cover corner as transfer Duron Lowe has pledged to the Flames. Lowe will have one season of eligibility after playing in 7 games for the Conference USA Miners in 2020.

The 5’10” 185 pound Lowe started the first 7 games of 2020 at corner for UTEP where he finished with 19 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 PBU, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery. He did not play in UTEP’s final game of the season after announcing he was entering the transfer portal. As good as Lowe was on defense, he also excelled as a kick returner, finishing with 9 returns for 292 yards including a 100 yard return for a touchdown.

Lowe spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons at UTEP and was name C-USA honorable mention in 2019 after starting 11 of 12 games in the secondary in his first season as a Miner. He finished the 2019 campaign with 25 tackles, 6 PBUs and a forced fumble while also leading the team with 11 kickoff returns for 281 yards including another 100 yard kickoff return for a score.

Prior to his time at UTEP, Lowe spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons at Butler Community College. He’s originally from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park, Kansas.

Lowe will join Liberty’s secondary where he will compete for a starting spot after senior Emanuel Dabney announced his intentions to transfer.
