Justin Howell is a tight end/defensive end prospect out of Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School (Pittsburgh, PA). At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, Howell could play on either side of the ball at the next level. Howell did not get too many opportunities to catch the football last season and that may be one of the reasons why he currently plays travel 7v7 football for the Evolve 7v7 program that's based out of Pittsburgh. With that in mind, when you watch his highlights, you'll see a mix of pass-catching and blocking on offense. Defensively, you get a good glimpse of his potential as a defensive end prospect.

Howell recently took home MVP honors at a recent tournament at Virginia Beach while playing with Evolve.

Howell will most likely be a a kid that will end up earning offers after he attends a few prospect camps in the upcoming months.

Check out his junior season highlights.
