The 6’0, 165-pounder released a top seven in early June that included Alabama, Auburn, Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, and Texas.
The Longhorns hosted Houston for an visit back in April, along with running back Marcus Majors, who committed to the Sooners last weekend. Houston was once considered a slight Oklahoma State lean, however, Houston’s four most recent Crystal Ball projections each favor Texas.
Collectively, the ‘Horns hold four of his five picks.
Texas currently holds two commitments from wide receivers — Arizona product Jake Smith and Cuero’s Jordan Whittington. Since the Horns missed on Garrett Wilson and have seemingly fallen behind with other in-state targets like Dylan Wright and Elijah Higgins, landing a talented prospect like Houston would be big news for Drew Mehringer and Corby Meekins.
Houston is ranked as a consensus four-star prospect, the No. 178 player nationally, the No. 29 wide receiver, and the No. 2 player in Oklahoma, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
