West Coast Regional Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins broke down California's latest commitment Trevor Howard for BearTerritory, and here's his take:
"Howard is one of the more versatile players in the state and could be used in a variety of ways in college," Biggins said. "He plays linebacker, defensive end and tight end at the H.S level and has the ability to play any of the three positions for the Bears. He has a linebacker frame, but is very strong and is a natural pass rusher."
While his offer sheet isn't very robust, Howard really came into his own this summer, with camp performances enticing several Pac-12 teams to start taking a look. What did he do that was so impressive?
"At the SoCal NIKE Camp back in March, he dominated the one-on-one drills working out with the defensive ends. He showed a great burst off the line, a variety of pass rush moves and violent hands. He has a great motor and plays with a consistent effort. He's a plus athlete as well and has the ability to run down plays from behind and shows excellent closing speed. He also looked very good catching the ball as a tight end during the spring/summer 7v7 circuit and could easily fill an offensive role at the next level if needed."
