On the 7th of February, 1973, Juwan Howard was born in Chicago, Illinois. Howard was reared by his maternal grandmother, Jannie Mae Howard, who adopted him when he was a child.

Several institutions scouted him, but he ultimately chose the University of Michigan. Along with Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Jimmy King, and Ray Jackson, he was a part of the Michigan Fab Five. In the 1992 and 1993 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Men’s Division I Basketball Championships, the Fab five’s combined efforts led Michigan to the finals.
Many of the school’s records and accolades have been forfeited by NCAA penalties as a result of the University of Michigan basketball scandal from 1992 to 1998, however, Howard’s 1993-94 All-American season achievement has remained.
