Howard’s remains attached to LSU following the announcement that Ed Orgeron will not be returning as LSU coach after the 2021 season. He was on campus for an unofficial visit last week and attended LSU games against Auburn and Florida.

According to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite, Howard ranks 31st among overall prospects in the country, 4th in the country and 3rd in Louisiana. On 247Sports, he is the No. 74 prospect nationally, the No. 6 quarterback in America and the No. 4 prospect in Louisiana.

With 14 engagements, LSU’s 2022 class ranks 12th in the country and 4th in the SEC, according to the 247Sports Composite Team Recruiting Rankings.

Notre Dame already has a quarterback engaged in this class at Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic four star signalman Steve Angeli. On 6-3, 215 pounds signed up to the Fighting Irish on March 4.

Here’s a look at his 247Sports scouting report from National Recruitment Analyst Gabe Brooks:

“A proper framework with a lean build that should add mass to the college. Established a reputation as an elite camp performer early in his high school career before taking on the starting duties of University. Posted encouraging test numbers early in career (4.76 40, 4.40 shuttle). Consistent and precise passer at all levels. Passes through throws and gets excellent zipper on balls at the short to intermediate range.

“Displayed stellar production in the junior breakout campaign. Thrown plenty of reps while valuing the ball, as evidenced by only one INT for 63 attempted passes (five in 316 throws). Not a true double threat but functionally mobile with the ability to extend plays outside the pocket, stays precise in motion, squares shoulders and even shoots while running.

“Lots of arm strength but still probably a bit of juice to squeeze at the top end which should come with some extra mass / physical strength. Usually stays on top of the ball but will have a bit of sail every now and then. . Has a good QB pedigree. Seems quite polished for age and could be a particularly high QB to the next level. High level competitive projects with long term NFL draft potential. “
