Houston said his four finalists consist of Clemson, Florida, Miami and North Carolina.
"I like Clemson because it's not too far from home, it's a big time football school, if I go there they have good competition on their roster, and it's in the ACC – a good football conference.
"I've been to Florida many times and I really like the program including their coaches. I have two brothers down there already telling me to come.
"Miami is like my dream school – I was excited when they offered me. They are top in the ACC. If I go there, I'll always be around football.
"North Carolina, I like the coaching staff and I like the football program and the academics."
