Top CB Tracy Howard stays in town, goes to Miami

tracy howard

Al Golden got a huge pickup early on during National Signing Day, and in the process, kept one of the top recruits in the country right at home.

Miramar (FL) cornerback Tracy Howard decided to become a Hurricane this morning over offers from Florida and Florida State. In his announcement, Howard had one of his friends come out wearing a Miami hat to make it official.

Miramar is the same high school that produced West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith and receiver Stedman Bailey.

Howard is the No. 40 overall prospect according to 247Sports and No. 13 overall recruit according to

    Best DB Miami has recruited in at least 5 years.

    What a shame. He should have gone to WVU. It’s treated other Miramar players (Geno Smith, Stedman Bailey) quite well. What exactly HAS Thug U done in the last ten years or so?

    Oh well, if he didn’t want to be there, his loss. I guess winning isn’t the only thing, right?

    @indywvu umm how about been to back to back national titles, winning one of them? What has YOUR school done in the last ten years…? Nothing? Yeah that’s what I THOUGHT.

    Thrilled that we got Tracy to stay home. He and Deon Bush could possibly start from the day they arrive on campus.

    I always get a kick out of people still referring to us as Thug U. I didn’t know it was still 1983.

    @paulydefense LOL seriously. You’d swear some of these individuals would stop being so sour. I guess that’s what happens when you dominate college football for over a decade. I’m right there with you, I can’t wait for these kids to come in and win the starting job from the get go. Don’t forget about the Duke either! That kids gunna ball super hard.

    I’m not sour at all. It’s an 18 year old kid that may not even pan out.

    WVU has won three BCS bowl games in the last ten years. More than the entire conference that Thug U is in.

    To be honest, Miami is as irrelevant as Notre Dame right now.

    Best of luck, Howard. Just hope WVU ends up in the Big XII so you don’t have to play them in the Orange and get torched like Clemson.

    Someone’s in denial.

    You can’t hate on the ACC all you want but I ask you this my good man, how many championships has your school won? How many NFL ALL PRO players has your school produced? How many future NFL H.O.F’s has your school produced?

    Your BCS bowls are all fine and dandy but considering the BCS might not be around in a couple of years doesn’t really do much for you.

    Miami is so irrelevant you still refer to it as ‘thug U’ eh? Like it our not, The U has impacted college football in a way WVU NEVER will.

    You guys get one incredible bowl win and now all of the sudden you’re
    A big time football program. Lol gimme a break.

    All I have to say is that the WVU fans should be grateful that we left and took Tech & BC with us. If not for that, the only whiff of the BCS they would be catching is from a TV set.

    They can hate all they want, but when was the last time WVU had 7 first players selected in one draft class?…………yeah, thats what I thought. Know your role and shut your mouth, as the U will be back and soon.
