It did not take much to sell J.K. Howard on Georgetown College.
The Danville senior said he liked everything about the school, and signed his letter of intent with the Tigers on Wednesday.
“Coach (Bill Cronin) really sold me, and the number of national championships, and the facilties are beyond what I expected,” Howard said. “The educational aspect I would get out of it. But what really sold me was the players, the hometown feeling and just the all-around aspect of the program. They really welcomed me.”
The 6-5, 305-pound Howard was recruited to Georgetown as a left tackle and center.
“That will be a big change if they put me there,” Howard said of left tackle. “Coach Cronin saw me as a backup left tackle, but the offensive line coach (Steve Hill) liked me as a center. They don’t have a starting center right now, so maybe I can go in and compete for that.”
Howard knows what a great tradition he is going to. Georgetown has won two national titles and finished 10-1 this season with a first-round loss to Bethel in the NAIA playoffs.
I’m not ready now, but by the time I get there, I will be,” Howard said.
