Julius had a great time when he came and visited Tech and committed to the Red Raiders after only visiting UTEP. Something must have impressed Julius when he was visiting Lubbock to garner his commitment after only seeing one other school, and that was the academic side of everything. "I just really liked everything about my visit, especially the academic side of things. My parents really like the school too and we all think it is a good place for me. I just felt like I would fit in really well there."
Howard, like many other Tech recruits, is just waiting until signing day so he can start working on Bennie's off-season program. In the meantime, he is keeping himself busy to make sure he stays in shape. "I run track in the mornings and then lift weights with the football team after school. I'm excited to get started on Tech's workout program after I sign with them."
