News on Dave Howell

University of Miami commitment Dave Howell had some interesting things to say in our recent conversation with him on Thursday. The talented defensive lineman provided an update on his status with just over a week to go before his season starts. Read on to find out...

At 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds, Royal Palm Beach, Fla. standout defensive lineman Dave Howell can't wait for the season to start.

"We've worked real hard this entire summer and we think we're going to be a good playoff contender," Howell said. "We have a scrimmage pretty much every practice and things look good."

Howell, who is fully qualified academically, said he'll be moving around this season.

"I'm still playing offensive tackle but this year, I'm going to play tight end too. And on defense, they're going to move me around from end to tackle to nose. It should be a lot of fun."

The standout lineman made an early commitment to the University of Miami, whose summer camp he dominated in late June.

It'll be interesting to watch the 295-pounder perform as a tight end this season.
