Things have gotten real busy for ESPNU 150 Watch List wide receiver Alton Howard (Orlando, Fla./Edgewater) lately.

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound speedster recently visited Miami for a junior day event and had a strong performance at the Badger 7-on-7 showcase in Tampa. Now he's heading to Florida at the end of the month.

Outside of the state, Notre Dame, West Virginia, USC, South Carolina, East Carolina, Purdue, TCU and Cincinnati are all programs that have offered and are tracking what the explosive Howard plans to do next.
