ESPNU Watch List tight end O.J. Howard committed to the University of Alabama last summer, but the in-state star is still being recruited by Auburn, and he visited the Crimson Tide’s rival school over the weekend for their junior day.

“It was a different experience from the first time I went because I got to meet the new offensive coordinator, Coach (Scot) Loeffler, and I really got to see a different side of Auburn,” Howard said. “I got to go to the basketball game, hang out with the coaches and I just had a lot of fun.”

Although he enjoyed the visit, Howard said he remains firm with his commitment to Alabama.
