Alabama State hosted its annual Pro Day event at the ASU Football Complex on Friday with all eyes there to see Tytus Howard. It was with that knowledge that Howard chose to work out at his home facility. He knew that was also a chance for scouts to place eyes on his teammates and even some rivals.

The Hornets off course sent several student-athletes to the field and weight room for the showcase including Kurron RamseyDennis Roberts IVIshmael Aurismond and Howard. Also, players from Tuskegee and Alabama A&M were able to show their best as well in Montgomery. The Hornets even brought back some former players still looking for a shot at professional football.

Howard’s stock as an offensive lineman has been on the rise. He’s being mentioned as a late first day and possible early second-day selection.
