Junior college recruiting has taken off in the past month. Here's a look at the action in the Upper…
JUCO Offensive Tackle To Know
Left tackle is definitely in his future at the FBS level. He discussed his game with Scout.
"I feel very good about my pass blocking right now," Howell said. "I have pretty good footwork and technique for it. It's probably the best part of my game. I still want to get better at everything, though. You can never be content and always have to put in work everyday."
Three big offers have already rolled in for Howell.
"Missouri, Kentucky, and Arkansas offered me," he confirmed. "The Arkansas offer came pretty recently. The offers from Missouri and Kentucky came over the Spring."
He shared his thoughts on the Tigers.
"I have stayed in quite a bit of contact with Missouri," Howell pointed out. "They love my size. They were very surprised by my athleticism. They said that playing time would be up to me. If I come in and put in a lot of hard work, I'll have a spot. There's no guarantee and I'll have to compete hard regardless."
The Wildcats intrigue Howell as well.
"Being in the SEC helps them," he stated about Kentucky. "It would be great to play in that conference, everybody wants to do that, and of course Missouri and Arkansas play in it, too. I'm originally from North Carolina before I moved to Kansas, so I know the area. I like it over there so that's a good thing about it. I speak with their staff every once in a while."
The Razorback offer is fairly new but he's been impressed with an Arkansas assistant already.
"I talk to Coach Pittman often," Howell noted. "He's had a lot of success. He gets his players where they want to be and I like that about him."
The junior college lineman gave a brief overview of his recruitment as a whole.
"All three of those schools recruit me about the same," Howell explained. "Nobody is recruiting me harder than the others. I like them all about the same, too."
"I've been talking to the coaches about some possible visits over this summer but nothing is locked in right now," he added."
Howell's visits will be a very important factor in his choice.
"I haven't dove into my recruitment very much at all or looked at the specifics," he admitted. "I'll dive into it a bit later. I need to take visits and learn more. I'll decide once I have a better idea of the schools and that will come once I am able to visit them."
