Coming out of high school, OJ Howard was number one in the country. Howard was born in Prattville Alabama, where he attended high school at Autauga Academy, so naturally, when it came time for college he chooses to play for Nick Saben at the University of Alabama. For Howards freshman year he only started five games, and his sophomore year looks about the same. Junior year, he had a tremendous year, he concluded it with two touchdowns, and 208 yards, with a total of 5 catches, against Clemson, that victory earned him the offensive MVP for the National Championship game. During his senior year, they lost to Clemson where Howard had 106 yards and only one touchdown. Howard is a gifted player, no doubt about that with his long arms and massive hands. I think he will be a great asset to any team. In his highlight reels in highs school, he looks like a man among boys. He took a big risk going to Alabama because they don’t have a strong throwing game, but he provides to be good anyway. He is the type of football player that keep defensive backs up at night.
