Carl Howard, 6-5, 290, 4.8, DT, Matawan, Matawan HS
Rutgers, North Carolina State, Maryland, Clemson, Michigan State, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Pittsburgh
"I like Maryland, Virginia Tech and North Carolina State. That's not a 'narrow down' list. I am going to wait until I take all my visits and then decide."
"I didn't go to camps. I was focusing on academics and my SATs to get myself into a better position for the fall."
"I love Rutgers. My dad went there. I love Coach Schiano, Coach Susan, they are real smart and down to earth individuals. They were the first school to offer me. I won't visit but the only reason is that I have been visiting that school ever since I was baby. My dad moved close to the school when he was in the NFL. There is just no reason for me to take that visit. That doesn't mean that Rutgers is out of it, it just means that I already know the school very, very well."
Last season Carl had 50 tackles, 5 sacks, 6 tackles for losses, 4 forced fumble recoveries, 1 fumble recovery, 5 passes batted down.
"I am working really, really hard in the weight room and on the track. I don't want to be 20th best in the nation. I want to be number one in the nation."
