Loyalty lands DB Rowe II
Oak Park (Ill.) River-Forest senior defensive back prospect Xavier Rowe II (5-foot-10, 182 pounds) gave South Dakota his verbal commitment after the Coyotes coaches made an in home visit on Thursday night.
"South Dakota made an in hime visit last night (Thursday)," Rowe II said. "I was going to wait until my official visit to commit (January 17th) but after talking to the coaches last night I was ready to end it. I gave South Dakota my verbal commitment and I'm really excited about my decision and so is my family."
Rowe II, who was an All Conference performer for the Huskies in 2013 talked about his decision.
"South Dakota recruited me the hardest and always made me a priority for them form the beginning of my recruiting process. They want me to play for them, recruiting me the hardest of any school and always had a plan for me. I've been talking to more and more schools since the season ended but in the end the loyalty they have shown me was too hard for me to pass up."
Rowe II is still set to make an official visit on January 17th and while he hasn't seen South Dakota in person he has no reservations about pledging to the Coyotes.
"I've seen a ton of stuff about South Dakota online. I'ver also always wanted to get away from this area for college and I always saw myself moving farther away from home in college. South Dakota is still just an hour flight away from home. It's not too far for my family to come see me and I can get back and forth when I need to get back home. I just trust the coaches and want to show them my loyalty by giving them my commitment."
Rowe II also talked about his planned role for the Coyotes.
"South Dakota recruited me as a defensive back and they also want me to return kicks. I've always been pretty versatile and I'll play anywhere that will help out the team. I'm very excited to pledge to South Dakota and so is my family."
Xavier Rowe II is verbally committed to South Dakota.
