Notre Dame A Top Contender Among TE Jaxon Howard’s 51 Offers

As a sophomore in high school, New Hope (Minn.) Robbinsdale Cooper Senior High School class of 2023 tight end Jaxon Howard is just at the age of being able to get a driver’s license. He also has 51 scholarship offers to choose from – 48 from Power Five programs.

“It’s been crazy for me,” Howard said of the recruiting process. “Sometimes I can’t even believe it’s happening to me right now.

“One thing that does help is that coaches can’t call yet, but I have a feeling that when Sept. 1 of this year comes around, my phone will be blowing up a little bit. I’m prepared to slowly but surely find which schools fit me and narrow my list down a bit.”

Howard is correct. Even if he trims his list in half by this fall, Howard’s phone and mailbox will be flooded by college coaches. Even though coaches can’t have in-person contact with Howard, they’re still able to recruit him hard by setting up weekly phone calls.
