"I went down there for one of the Junior Days," Howard said. "The facilities were great. I met Al Golden and he seems like a good dude. All those coaches are good dudes down there. I felt real comfortable there and I'm looking more into it now."
Howard, 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, finished his junior season with 546 rushing yards and 1146 receiving and 23 touchdowns.
As a prospect: He played a few different positions at Edgewater last season and made an impact at all of them. He got most of his yards on the ground as a junior. He's very fast and elusive in the open field. He's also a very good cornerback but probably projects best as a wide receiver at the college level. At 5-10, he has difference-maker type speed, soft hands, and he's a natural and finding openings in the secondary. He'll be one of the top prospects in all the central Florida area in 2011 and is already collecting offers.
