Allen Iverson is one of the top small guards in NBA history, and since his playing days he has gone on to found the Iverson Classic All-America Game.

This year’s game was played in Memphis, Tennessee, during which Michigan Wolverines Top 50 Recruit Jett Howard, the son of Juwan Howard, took home MVP honors.

Howard dominated the second half of the game, showing off his smooth pull-up and bank shot game as seen in the highlight clip below.

Howard is ranked #41 in the nation according to’s latest Class of 2022 rankings, but he could rise further if his play in Memphis is any indication.

He will join brother Jace Howard in Ann Arbor this coming fall, and could be in line for a starting position, especially if starting small forward Caleb Houstan chooses not to return for the Wolverines.

Fellow starting forward Moussa Diabate also could join Houstan in the NBA, which could open up another potential starting job for Jett Howard.

The 6-foot-7, 185 prospect also showed off his skills at the Jordan Brand Classic on April 15, as shown in the video below.

Howard Receives Words of Wisdom and a Hug From Iverson After the Game


Iverson embraced the Michigan recruit in the parking lot after the game, sharing words of wisdom and advice, as seen in the video below.

“You gonna be great regardless of this hoop s–t. Just be a great dude like your motherf–king daddy,” Iverson said.


If Howard can be half the player Iverson was with the Georgetown Hoyas in college, he’s got a chance to be a special player, that much is for sure.
