Minneapolis Robbinsdale Cooper four-star tight end Jaxon Howard has announced his final four teams and his official visit dates for the month of June.

Howards’ top four are LSU, Miami, Michigan and Minnesota. He will be visiting all four schools on official visits in the month of June.

He will first visit his hometown school of Minnesota on June 10. Then he will visit Michigan, LSU and then Miami over the course of the next week.

Howard is No. 100 overall recruit in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is the No. 7 tight end in the country.

Minnesota is the current favorite for Howard, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.

RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college. 

It factors in machine learning, expert predictions, social sentiment, visits, and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $122k. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
