The highly touted prospect in the DC, MD, VA area 2015 Shooting Guard Frank Howard told Alex Kline that he will commit on April 14. The reason Howard is comimiting on that day because it's his birthday. Howard also told Alex Kline that his list includes six schools that he will make a choice from. The schools Howard will be choosing from is NC State,  Ohio State, Georgetown, Syracuse, UVA and Maryland.

The shooting guard was sideline throughout his whole junior season because he was recovering from a torn ACL. I had the chance to watch Howard practice and do individual drills. Howard was cleared on Monday. Howard will be playing EYBL for Team Takeover this summer. Howard attends Paul Vi in Fairfax, Virginia. According to Hoyas247, Howard does plan on visiting Georgetown before he commits.

Virginia247 did an interview with Howard and he talked about what he liked about each school. The reason he likes Georgetown is " "The Hoyas have been with me since my freshman year. They tremendous tradition and my dad is a big fan. I really like Coach JTIII."

A source indicated to on Monday that the belief is that Howard will commit to Syracuse. Also, Syracuse has been following Howard. The reason Howard likes Syracuse is ""Like Ohio State, it's a great program that's always in the Top-25. There is so much tradition at Syracuse. I have a great relationship with Coach Autry. He's great." Howard said. If Howard commits to Georgetown, he will be playing with his current and AAU teammate Marcus Derrickson. Derrickson committed to Georgetown in October. Also, Howard will be playing with Tre Campbell, who is a senior at St Johns Catholic high school and played with team takeover. Wherever Howard goes, he will make a impact on any team. One thing to note about Howard is that he will not  be playing in the first EYBL event and will be taking it easy as he told Virginia247. According to 247, Howard is ranked NO. 13 nationally in the 2015 class and is ranked NO.3 in the state of Virginia. Howard has a composite rating of .9573, which equals to four stars.
