Mississippi Scout
Posted Sep 27, 2011

The 6' 1", 220-pound linebacker continues to show improvement in his game. To learn more about Ford Howell out of MUS, read below.

Name: Ford Howell
MUS (Tenn.)
6' 1", 220-pounds
Cinci, Duke, Kentucky, Maryland, Ole Miss, NC State, Vandy, Virginia, Wake Forest Ranking: NR live evaluation: Ford led the Owls' defense with 14 tackles in the game we watched him against South Panola. He is very active to the ball and gets off his blockers quick enough to consistently be around the ball. He still needs to work on his overall speed and size but the 220 pound junior has made big gains in both departments since his sophomore season. If he can have another off season like last one he will be well on his way.
