Minnesota Football Recruiting: Phillip Howard Commits To Gophers

The Gophers welcome another local athlete to the team!

Vitals:

Name: Phillip Howard
Position: ATH
Hometown/School: Minneapolis, MN (Robbinsdale Cooper)
Profile: 247Sports Profile // Scroll of the Sworn!
Rating: - 0.8510 Composite Score

How he fits:

Howard has the speed, open field vision and quickness that could make him into a great option at slot receiver. Phillip is legitimately one of the fastest prospects from the state in years, and while the program prioritizes speed across the board, making the transition from high school quarterback to slot guy is something this staff has already done before, most notably with K.J. Maye.
