Patrick Flowe, a linebacker from Parkview High School, has committed to Georgia Southern.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder picked Georgia Southern over a half-dozen offers, including Georgia State, Troy and Toledo. Flowe is the son of longtime Parkview football coach Cecil Flowe.
“Georgia Southern has really been after him for a long time,” the elder Flowe said. “We went down, visited and saw a game. The coaches have really been recruiting him hard. Patrick wanted to be fairly close to home. I think it’s a good fit for him. They want him as a true linebacker. I think that was a big key for him. He made his decision, and he’s excited about it.”
Flowe is the emotional leader for Parkview’s defense, runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds and has a 3.96 GPA. “He will be an outside linebacker at Georgia Southern,” the elder Flowe said. “He will be a guy that plays on the edge like he does for us now. He’ll drop in coverage and also be able to go rush the QB.”
