WKU added a local signee Thursday to its 2012 recruiting class.

Warren Central High School pitcher Trevor Lowe made it official by signing on to play baseball for the Toppers in the spring of 2013.

Lowe said it’s “exciting” to finally finish the process.

Lowe was considering schools in Tennessee such as Austin Peay and a number of Division II schools but said that WKU “just fell into place.”

“It’s so close to home,” he said. “All my family can go and it’s a good program.”

Lowe said while he’s definitely excited, he knows there’s a lot he has to do to get prepared for baseball at the college level.

“I’m going to have to fill out more and get more muscle mass,” he said. “Just keep working hard and do everything I can in the weight room.”

Lowe said he’s already established a good relationship with WKU Head Coach Matt Myers, saying he’s “probably one of the best coaches I’ve ever met.”

Overall, Lowe said he’s glad that his commitment is official and now he can continue to prepare for his senior season and his career at WKU beyond that.

“I just can’t wait to get up there,” he said.
