Junior Video: Ryan Houston

Although the jury is still out on naming the top recruit in North Carolina for the 2007 recruiting class, Ryan Houston could easily be penciled into the position. Here's your chance to catch the Matthews (N.C.) Butler star in action ...

Name: Ryan Houston
Hometown: Matthews, North Carolina
High School: Butler High School
Position: Running Back
Vitals: 6'2/240/4.7

Notes: Houston, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound running back, already holds scholarship offers from Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

He is arguably the state's top prospect and will likely secure even more offers in the near future.

Coach Quote: "I think his size is definitely an attribute. He's got the size to go through a hole that he needs to go through. He's got great vision – he sees the hole exceptionally well. He's able to change direction and make people miss. You don't normally see that on a kid that's 240 pounds, but he's a heck of an athlete. He's going to be able things do things that a 180-pound ‘back can't do, and he's going to be able to do a lot of things that a 180-pound ‘back can do." -- Butler head coach Mike Newsome
