"It's a lot different for me than last year," Houston said. "The biggest thing is that I know what to do. It's hard because you have to know what to do for every single front you see. Until then you can't play fast."
Houston sat out last season – burning up his redshirt season. He's expected to contribute this fall, currently backing up Kenarious Gates at left guard. Houston says he's ready to help the Bulldogs any way he can.
"The biggest thing is that you have to show what you can do, and you have to be dependable so your coaches can rely on you," he said.
Houston went on to say that he's not running with the centers any more during three-deep practices. It seems likely that either starting right guard Chris Burnette or true freshman David Andrews will spell Ben Jones in the fall, and that's OK with Houston.
"Right now I am just playing guard," he said. "Center is a whole different ball game. I still do individual drills at center, but I am a guard."
