Last month news broke that freshman quarterback Mack Lowrie had decided to leave Boston College. Although we aren't a 100% certain, it appears that his style of play wasn't going to mesh with the system that Ryan Day and Steve Addazio were looking to implement at Boston College. Reading the writing on the wall, and most likely understanding that he wouldn't start with the recruitment of Darius Wade, Lowrie left. Can't fault him for that.
Today as schools announced their recruiting hauls, FCS program the University of Rhode Island announced that Lowrie will be transferring there:
Rhode Island program has been a train wreck lately, but looks to bounce back recently hiring UCF defensive coordinator Jim Fleming as their head coach. URI Blog Rhody Rampage thinks the transfer of Lowrie could be huge for the Rams, and that he could immediately be a starter this season. Glad to hear that Mack will get a chance right away.
Mack Lowrie's short chapter at Boston College is closing, but new opportunities will hopefully open up for him with Rhode Island. If you want to follow his career, check out Rhody Rampage on Twitter as well. Happy trails Mack!
