Howze makes decision
"I found out Southern Miss offered me on Friday and I committed to them on Saturday," said Allen Howze. "I have been there a few times and I really like it there. I have been to Southern Miss for games and I went there for their Junior Day nd I really like the environment there." The 6-foot-1, 195 pound running back out of Ocean Springs said it is all about the family. "DeAndre Brown is my cousin and he has been talking to me about coming there with him for a while. I got the offer and we are going to make it a family deal now. We will both be playing for Southern Miss together. We are excited about it." Another thing Howze is excited about it the options he has once he gets there. "Both the offensive and defensive coaches have apprived me to play on each side of the ball, so I could play either running back or safety there," he said. "I would like to play running back if I had a choice, but I am okay with either position. I just want to get out there and play." Right now he is just focused on making plays at Ocena Springs and improving his game for his future at Southern Miss. "I am excited about it and I am happy with my decision." Howze ran for close to 1,000 yards in 2008. Steve Robertson of Scout.com contributed to this breaking news.
