Boston College quarterback Mack Lowrie has decided to withdraw from school, the Boston Herald reported on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-3, 207-pound freshman from the recruiting class of 2013 redshirted this past season and will have four seasons of eligibility remaining, though he will have to sit out a year if he goes to another FBS program.
According to the Herald, Lowrie withdrew from school because he doesn’t appear to be a fit with what the Eagles are trying to do on offense under coach Steve Addazio, who replaced Frank Spaziani before last season. Spaziani recruited Lowrie to BC out of West Roxbury, Mass.
The Eagles lost Chase Rettig to graduation, so the starting quarterback spot should be wide open heading into spring drills. Rising senior Josh Bordner, who backed up Rettig last season, is the favorite to win the job.
