PrepBaseball.com report:
The 6-foot-1, 165-pound Howard (right) is a legitimate two-way prospect who performed extremely well in all facets of the game. At shortstop, Howard was the top defensive middle infielder at the event, showing fluid and easy actions, to go along with soft hands and the top arm across the infield (88 mph). He demonstrated advanced footwork and played through the ball well. Plus read more on his defense and pitching HERE
Around the Horn with Howell Central's Ryan Howard (Prep Baseball Report, Oct 2011)
I played for the St. Louis Pirates and really enjoyed it all season. It’s a very good program with an outstanding training facility. The main thing I wanted to improve during the summer is my speed; my goal is to run under a 7.0 by high school season.

While Howard showed a projectable bat, he was even more impressive on the mound, running his fastball up to 85 with long, smooth arm action and good command of his fastball, 69 mph curveball and 75 mph changeup.
