"I just got in from the visit," says the 6-foot-6, 290 pounder. "It was good; pretty exciting. In terms of the coaches, I really like Coach (Charley) Wiles, the defensive line coach. I think I could play under him because they say he taught a lot of NFL players. Jonathan Lewis was my host, and he said this is a good school and Coach Wiles is a great coach."
Obviously, Howard was impressed with his visit and thought about making a commitment.
"Yeah of course. I thought about committing, but I'm just going to take this week to think about my decision.
"Right now it's just NC State and Virginia Tech. It's about even right now. I'm going to discuss it with my family and make a decision from there."
