Home really is where the heart is when it comes to recruiting. For Coral Gables RB Greg Howell, he thought that getting away from home wouldn’t be that difficult but as the recruiting process moved on he realized he was mistaken.
“Being close to home was a big factor. At the beginning I didn’t really think it was but as time kept coming down, being home was just something that became attractive.”
Howell joins a FAU class that will welcome in two other running backs, but he is the only one coming in that stands over 6 feet tall and weighs over 200 pounds which he thinks is a big advantage.
“Most of the coaches tell me that I fit great into the system. Knowing that they lost two running backs and that they are bringing in a good class of running backs, I can be into the rotation very soon due to the fact that I’m one of the tailbacks that is a bigger size guy. So knowing that, I know that I will probably see the field early.”
Howell had offers from Minnesota, Western Kentucky and Bucknell as well.
