Early Life & CareerEdit
Howard was born in Longview, Texas, where he became a star at Longview High School. Playing safety, he earned District Defensive MVP honors as a senior for the Lobos in 2013. He verbally committed to play at TCU and signed his national letter of intent with the Horned Frogs on February 5, 2014.
At TCU, Howard played sparingly as a freshman in 2014. After the first game of his sophomore season, Howard was moved to Linebacker and led the Horned Frogs in tackles the next week against Stephen F. Austin. He went on to start the next 11 games, and would end the season as the team's leading tackler. He also earned Defensive MVP honors in the Frogs' triple-overtime victory over Oregon in the 2015 Alamo Bowl.
As a full-time starter in his junior and senior seasons in Fort Worth, Howard again led the Horned Frogs in tackles - becoming the first player in program history to do so for three consecutive seasons. He was named first-team All-Big 12 in both seasons and again earned Defensive MVP honors in his final collegiate game, a win over Stanford in the 2017 Alamo Bowl.
