Howard's coach Ricky Williams of George Washington Carver high school confirmed to Scout.com that Howard has committed to Michigan State.
The 6-foot-4, 280-pound interior lineman recorded an astounding 110 tackles and 15 sacks on statistics kept by Orangeand Green.net and was recruited by Memphis, Mississippi, LSU, and Lousiana Tech.
Howard played both offense and defense throughout the 48 minute games. He was an exceptional offensive and defensive player, leading his young team to a 6-0 District Championship. Howard played offensive line and defensive line and was a District 8-5A selection on the defensive line this season. Williams said Howard is academically qualified and could contribute at Michigan State immediately.
The Rams finished 4-4 with Howard being named all-District for his play along the defensive line.
