"We still have four or five more that we intend to sign," said Howard head coach Gary Harrell.  "As far as these signees, we've filled some of our most important needs. We have people who can come in and fill our needs, and at the same time change the culture and get back to our winning ways.  It was our goal to get bigger, taller, longer and more athletic and I think we accomplished that."

Harrell continues, "two specific areas that we wanted to address is stopping the run of HOWand establishing the run on offense.  I think we now have the people who can help us in those areas."
