MORGANTOWN \u2014 West Virginia baseball coach Randy Mazey said he and football coach Neal Brown are intent on helping redshirt freshman Trey Lowe develop a plan for playing both sports this spring.\r\n\r\nLowe is one of three scholarship quarterbacks who will be cramming to learn Brown\u2019s offensive system. The 6-foot-2 native of Collierville, Tenn., also has the potential to help in Mazey\u2019s outfield. Lowe batted .471 with five home runs in his final high school baseball season before enrolling at West Virginia in January 2018.\r\n\r\n\u201cIn the short time I\u2019ve known Coach Brown so far, he\u2019s such a nice guy that he\u2019s worried about how I feel about it, and I\u2019m worried about he feels about it, and poor Trey\u2019s left in the middle,\u201d Mazey said.\r\n\r\nAfter enrolling early last year, Lowe practiced with the baseball team but did not see game action.\r\n\r\nWith the more lenient redshirt rule in football, Lowe\u2019s only quarterback action came in the loss to Syracuse at the Camping World Bowl. He had one carry for nine yards and completed both passing attempts.\r\n\r\nAfter Will Grier\u2019s graduation, Lowe will compete for the quarterback job beside bowl game starter Jack Allison and Oklahoma graduate transfer Austin Kendall. Mazey understands how critical Lowe\u2019s spring football reps will be.\r\n\r\n\u201cI want Trey to be able to compete for the quarterback job if he has an opportunity to do so,\u201d he said. \u201cBut Coach Brown wants him to be able to compete for an outfield job.\u201d\r\n\r\nMazey said no decision has been made between the coaches on how Lowe should split time, but Lowe projects to get at-bats early this season to see how he fares against Division I pitching.\r\n\r\n\u201cTrey is a great kid and he will do whatever\u2019s asked of him,\u201d Mazey said.\r\n\r\nWhile Kendall enters as the preseason favorite to win the quarterback nod, Brown insists no promises were made when the four-star prospect transferred from Oklahoma. He wants all three quarterbacks to compete during spring camp evaluations.\r\n\r\n\u201cTrey is playing baseball, so his availability in the spring \u2014 depending on how baseball is going \u2014 could be limited, and we have to have more guys in that room,\u201d Brown said. \u201cThat\u2019s college football. The game is played so fast in this league and you play so many plays, you better have at least three quarterbacks in that room that are capable of playing. So that was probably need No. 1 is we needed to add a quarterback.\u201d\r\n\r\nLowe isn\u2019t the first WVU football player to play baseball under Mazey. Garrett Hope played fullback for the Mountaineers from 2012-\u201914 before becoming a full-time catcher for the baseball team in 2015. Drafted by the Dodgers, he has spent the last four seasons in the minors.\r\n\r\nThe baseball team opens its season Friday at Kennesaw State and will spend nine days in the Peach State with follow-up games against Georgia State, Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern.\r\n\r\nWest Virginia\u2019s spring football practice stretches from March 19 to the Gold-Blue game on April 13.
