Michigan football extended a new scholarship offer Thursday, informing 2016 Westlake (Calif.) Village three-star wide receiver Theo Howard he has an offer from the Wolverines.

“Me and my head coach had been talking to Michigan basically all week,” Howard said. “And then I got to practice and he told me to call Coach Nussmeier after practice. When I was done I called him and he just offered me.”

For Howard, who currently holds three other offers from the likes of Washington State, San Diego State and UCLA, the Michigan offer is something extra special.

“Michigan has always been my favorite and it’s been a dream since I was a little kid so a lot of relief and joy,” Howard said. “My parents were happy.

“Basically, I just like how they’re explosive and stuff like that and they like my speed and loved my tape. I’ll probably go and take an unofficial visit there at the end of the season.”

“Really that was the only school that caught my eye when I was little,” Howard added. “And I just kind of stuck with it.”

Currently 6-foot-0, 178-pounds, Howard and his team are off to a strong start this year, 2-1 heading into Friday night.

Howard also has 50 receptions already for 300-yards unofficially and three touchdowns, a big time deep threat for Westlake Village.

“I’m a solid outside receiver that just brings a lot of speed to the game and a lot of explosiveness,” Howard said. “I can go up and get the football and I’m explosive off the line, and can make big plays.”

The three-star talent has already taken trips to UCLA and Maryland, actually a native of Maryland prior to moving to California six years ago.

This fall, in addition to visiting Ann Arbor to check out Michigan, Howard is looking to setup visits with Arizona State and California.
