For the second time in three months, class of 2015 cornerback Antonio Howard of Miami (Fla.) Norland has de-committed, this time breaking off his verbal agreement with Cincinnati. In May, he de-committed from Florida International.
Howard made his decision today while attending a camp at Alabama, a school now in his latest top three. Georgia and Tennessee are the other two. None of the three have offered yet.
"(Those three) are coming at me hard every day," said Howard, who stands at 5-foot-10, 163 pounds. "Georgia is the closest to offering."
Howard said he plans on visiting Georgia on July 18 and is looking into when he can visit Tennessee.
As for his reason behind de-committing from the Bearcats, there were many.
"I feel like (Cincinnati) wasn't a good fit for me," he said. "I prefer a bigger school and a better school in a bigger conference. Also, it's too far from home."
A big reason Howard said he initially committed to Cincinnati was because his father was a big fan of the program. But now he has reopened the process and has the SEC on his mind.
Howard is currently sitting on 15 offers, including West Virginia, where his father played.
