Missouri Signs OL Tyler Howell for 2016 Season
Butler Community College standout Howell, a 6-8 OL prospect, will join Mizzou for 2016
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Mizzou Football head coach Barry Odom announced Wednesday that Tyler Howell (Olathe, Kan.) has signed his letter of intent to join Mizzou’s program for the 2016 season. Howell, a 6-8, 300-pound offensive lineman, joins Mizzou after a successful career at Butler Community College where he most recently played in 2014. He will be eligible for the 2016 season.
Howell is a big-bodied offensive tackle with tremendous size and length combined with good quickness and footwork. He was a First Team Junior College All-American and rated as the 37th-best junior college prospect by ESPN and the fifth-best junior college offensive lineman in the 2015 class.
Howell helped guide Butler to an 8-3 record in 2014, while working across an offensive line that was paramount in helping gain more than 5,000 yards of total offense. He chose Mizzou over offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky and Penn State among others.
