BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection as a junior, when he became a full-time starter and posted 45/3/13. Started nine games as a sophomore, registering 20 tackles and breaking up eight passes.
POSITIVES: Feisty cornerback with a cocky attitude. Aggressive throughout the action, fights hard to defend throws and backs down to no one. Jams opponents at the line of scrimmage, is fluid turning his hips to run downfield and quickly breaks to the throw.
NEGATIVES: Gets turned on occasion, does not display top instincts and is slow locating the ball with his back to the action. Struggles transitioning downfield and shows a bit of hesitation to his game. Does not display top-end speed.
ANALYSIS: A developing corner with good size and a solid game, Houston has the physical style to play in press coverage as well as the abilities to be used in a zone system. Offers a good degree of upside, yet must complete his game before he.ll see action as a starter.
