Howle Picks Up Big Offer
Ty Howle, a 6-foot-2, 290-pound center from Bunn High School picked up his second offer today from Penn State after the Nittany Lions coaching staff reviewed his film during a recruiting meeting. He had already held one offer from Navy and has interest coming in from many schools, but this latest one was definitely a bit special. "Coach Larry Johnson called my father today when we were eating lunch together in the coaches' office (Howle's father is also his head coach)," Howle said. "He told me that he was taking my film into a meeting with him to show to the centers and guards coach at Penn State and would be calling me back to tell me what they thought later today." "Coach Johnson then gave my father a call back at around 3:30 pm and asked him if he could speak to me briefly," Howle explained. "He told me that I had a scholarship offer from Penn State and then put me on the phone with their offensive line coach (Dick Anderson) so he could talk to me. He said that I reminded him a lot of their current center A.Q. Shipley and thought I was a perfect fit for them. They want me to come up and visit there in the spring, so I will be up as soon as spring practice starts." Howle went on to talk about what he likes about Penn State. "The tradition is big. When you have had the same coach for so many decades it's definitely a sign that you're not only stable program, but a successful program," Howle stated. "Playing for Coach Joe Paterno would be an honors and I have always dreamed of meeting him as my father has talked about him since I was a little kid. My friend Brandon Barnes said it is beautiful there and the staff said that their pre-med program is very good, so that really excited me." As a junior, Howle was first-team All-Conference and All-State. He was also named Conference Lineman of the Year. He carries a 3.9 core GPA. He runs a 4.8 short shuttle, bench pressed 400 pounds and squats 500 pounds.
