"I've watched every Wake Forest game on T.V. Their defense has been a little banged up and I think the suspensions hurt, but they're getting better. I'm going to be there for the Boston College game on an unofficial visit and then for Vanderbilt when I take my official."
At MUS, Howell plays weakside linebacker in a 3-3-5 set. The Owls are 6-2 and have clinched the number one seed for the playoffs in their region.
"I don't know exactly but I have around 50 tackles in eight games," he said. "I have eight tackles for loss, one sack, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. A huge thing here at MUS is running to the ball. That's what we stress here. I think I'm doing a good job of that this year. I'm stronfer and faster and I'm reading plays quicker. It's not over yet. We still have two games left, but I really think this team is going to be successful in the playoffs."
While Howell speaks often with Brian Knorr, who coaches the inside linebackers at Wake Forest, his recruiting coach is Steed Loboztke. MUS plays in TSSAA Division II-AA. They play White Station this weekend then have their season finale with Briarcrest Christian.
