Houston Granted a Sixth Year

Georgia's Kolton Houston was awarded a sixth year of eligibility on Friday, according to the NCAA.

ATHENS – Georgia announced on Friday that senior offensive lineman Kolton Houston was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

Houston, a graduate of Buford High, will have one season of eligibility left at Georgia, which will cap off a career that started in 2010.

“I’m extremely blessed to wear this jersey for one more year,” Houston tweeted Friday night. “So thankful for everybody that has helped me along the way. #GoDawgs”

Houston started every game of the 2014 regular season at right tackle for Georgia. Last season, Houston appeared in 13 games and made six starts after being granted reinstatement by the NCAA in July following a three-year suspension that resulted from a routine drug testing which detected a banned substance medically administered following a shoulder surgery in high school.
