Big 12 Ht., Wt.: 6'3, 273 40 Time: 4.85 Grade: 3.08
BIO: Became a full-time starter as a senior and posted 44/6/4 after 44/5/3 the prior season.
POSITIVES: hard-working, over achiever that plays with excellent techniques. Quickly gets off the ball, bends his knees and rarely off his feet. Intelligent, diagnoses the action and displays an array of moves to stay off blocks. Fluid changing direction and fast off the edge.
NEGATIVES: Small, stymied at the point or easily moved from his angle of attack. Does not always play to his 40 time.
ANALYSIS: A mature individual and hard-working defender, Houchin has been reliable in college. Physical size does not translate well to the next level but his knowledge of the game and use of fundamentals could help him find a spot on a roster.
