Michael Howard talks visits
"The main schools showing interest in me are Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Tennessee and Arkansas," said Michael Howard. "Right now my favorites are between Ole Miss, Southern Miss and Tennessee. I plan on going to the Ole Miss camp June 2nd and the LSU camp June 25th. "I did go over to Ole Miss for a visit last week. I didn't really get a chance to speak with the coaches. I had fun though. I feel like coach Hugh Freeze is a great coach. The campus is phenomenal." Howard spent time at another out-of-state SEC school with a trip to Knoxville. "I went to Tennessee this past weekend," he said. "The visit to Tennessee was pretty good. I like the facilities. The indoor facilities were nice. "They have different stations set up for the football players for different injuries. I like the fact they have an on-campus Doctor. They work on you there instead of going to the hospital. "I think Tennessee would be a fun place to go to. I think Coach Dooley. He is a great coach, and I'd be interest in playing for him." Another one of Howard's favorite is Southern Miss. "I just like the coaches in general," he said. "They seem like a great group of guys to work with. They know what kind of players they want. Their football field and locker rooms are kept up nicely. They build you up and make you a better football player." Howard finished his junior season with 196 rushes for 1,432 yards and 18 touchdowns. He had 67 tackles on defense, three sacks, two interceptions, three pass deflections and two fumble recoveries. "I just try to find a hole and if I can't find one I make one," Howard said. "I want to work on my 40. It's not where I want it to be right now."
