Terrence Howard committed to play for Alabama football prior to the 2023 season. However, he never saw any playing time in Nick Saban’s final season at the SEC school. He did, however, participate on the school’s nationally-ranked track team.

Howard reported several offers from HBCU programs, including Texas Southern, close to his hometown. He also reported an offer from Southern University.

Ultimately, North Carolina Central — a year-and-a-half removed from being MEAC and HBCU national champions after being Jackson State — pulled Howard in. NC Central went 9-3 in the 2023 season, however, it will play 2024 without the services of players such as Brandon Codrington (who just signed with the New York Jets) or Khalil Baker, the 2022 MEAC Defensive Player of The Year.
