``They have recruited me well and I felt comfortable with the staff," Howard said. "It felt like a place I can fit in. I had a lot of other bigger schools, but South Florida stayed with me and be persistent. They really wanted me."
Howard is a stocky, 6-4, 200-pound point guard who averaged 20 points, 10 assists and 4 rebounds at Friendly High (Md.) last season.
Howard is a good outside shooter who can finish and also makes good decisions, but his quickness is in question, especially having to guard smaller defenders, until he gets into better shape.
