"I went to the Alabama on Sunday afternoon and was up there until Monday," said O.J. Howard. "The camp was really good. I worked out at outside linebacker. I liked the circuit they had us doing for the warm-ups. They really woke you up. The drills we did were very intense and fun.
"I thought I did real good out there. Coach Saban talked to me after the camp. He told me they don't like to
offer players this early, but said with me it's very possible I could get an early offer."
The 6-foot-5, 215-pound prospect spent his time working with linebacker coach Sal Sunseri.
"It was fun working out with coach Sal," he said. "You learn a lot of things from him. Coach Sal told me
I got better every day. He wants me to come back in July for the next camp.
"It was fun working linebacker. I didn't want to do it at first. I wanted to play receiver. I started working it, and
I really liked it. Alabama is recruiting me as a linebacker. I think it's a great opportunity. It should be fun.
"I am looking forward to learning more about the position. I feel like I learned some good things out there. I learned
how to use my hips and open myself up in coverages. I still need to work on my hands and footwork."
Howard is an impressive athlete who clocked a 4.66 40-yard dash on Sunday in Tuscaloosa. He has high interest in the Crimson Tide.
"I like the facilities and the weight room," he said. "The weight room is the biggest in the nation. The coaches
were very nice and helped me out a lot. I plan on going back in July."
