We are proud to honor all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate each of them on their selection.”
The 6-foot-0, 175-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #4 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, making him a five-star prospect.
Howard is listing interest in schools like Florida, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Miami and Florida State.
Scout Eval: "Howard is an elite cover corner. He has very good feet, his back pedal is very smooth, and he can change direction with the best of them. He is more of a finesse coverage guy at this time and he needs to improve the use of his hands at the line and his ability to play press coverage. He has the ability to play very early on the next level. He is sound fundamentally, he plays hard, and he has the skills to slide right in and play." - Chad Simmons
