The recruitment of 6-foot, 223 pound junior William Houston is beginning to heat up. After coming off of an impressive junior season, the running back out of Ohio says that his first two offers could be right around the corner.
"Northwestern and Cincinnati are close to offer me," said Houston. "That's very exciting. I'm hoping to get my first offer soon. I've been working hard for it."
"I like Northwestern's academic reputation and how they're switching to Under Armour and will be its first school in the Big Ten. And then I like Cincinnati because it's an in-state school and they have a great program."
The junior had the chance to visit both schools last football season and had a great time.
"I really liked Northwestern's campus. And at Cincinnati, their band really kept the crowd in the game."
Houston has also been hearing from numerous other schools and says that two stand out.
"Alabama and Mississippi State out of the SEC. I was really excited when I say they were interested."
