Recruiting: Howard One Of Top At Camp

Offensive tackle Gavin Howard of Owasso, Okla., knows the offensive line group at the Oklahoma State prospect camp on Sunday was a stout group. There were five or six really strong prospects among the nearly 20 linemen in attendance. The 6-5 1/2, 285-pound Howard certainly passed the eye test, and he was proud to be lining up at right tackle on the number one offensive line in the camp.

"I thought it went pretty well," said Howard. "I was shooting for getting plenty of exposure in front of the coaches and I think I pretty well accomplished that. I was happy that I got a few extra reps and was working with that first group."

The offensive and defensive linemen did a little pro pass drill work and it certainly showed who could move their feet. Howard did well during the drill and against a tough assignment in 6-5 defensive end and pass rusher Kenneth Garrett of Crooked Oak, Okla.

Howard said he is interested in Oklahoma State, but has more schools to check out.

"This summer I'm just working out and going to these camps to get exposure and preparing to play well at the start of next season," he said. "I was at Missouri last week and that went about the same as Oklahoma State. It was good. This next Saturday I'm going to KU."

It's a circuit and right now these camps are keeping a lot of prospect busy and causing their parents to spend some money at the gas pumps.
