Former LSU quarterback Walker Howard has found a home at Ole Miss.

The St. Thomas More product announced his new decision Wednesday morning via Twitter.

Howard was the top rated dual-threat quarterback in the 2022 class. He made two appearances for the Tigers this season (vs. Southern and in the Citrus Bowl against Purdue) and attempted four passes, completing two.

In the prep ranks, he threw for 3,430 yards with 42 scores as a junior and 2,394 yards with 25 touchdowns as a senior. In the 2020 state championship game, the son of former LSU quarterback Jamie Howard threw for 381 yards and four touchdowns in a 35-28 win over De La Salle.

Howard visited Ole Miss this past weekend and also considered TCU and Florida. Garrett Riley, the offensive coordinator at TCU, has just moved over to Clemson.

Returning Ole Miss starter Jaxson Dart, who has two seasons remaining, tossed for 2,974 yards this past season, completing 62.4% of his attempted with 20 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. Former backup Luke Altmyer has transferred to Illinois.

Former Alabama defensive coordinator and Hammond native Pete Golding has named to the same job at Ole Miss where head coach Lane Kiffin is hoping to make a big jump up in 2023.

Howard and Ole Miss play at Tulane Sept. 9 and host LSU Sept. 30.
