Haughton, who holds over 20 offers from some of the most recognizable programs across the country, cut his list down to 10 earlier this summer and now five. His whole plan is to commit and be mostly done with the recruiting process before Waco Midway's two-a-days begin Aug. 11.
The four-star prospect, rated as the No. 26 safety in the nation by Scout.com, would not budge on which team is currently in the lead, but said none of the remaining five have been eliminated.
- "Arkansas has a different type of defense than those other schools run. It prepares you for the NFL with a chance to play early & to play in the SEC."
- "Baylor is the hometown team. They won the Big 12 and are building something special. I also have a great relationship with the coach on and off field."
- "Duke is on the rise. They've got the best of both worlds, with an outstanding education and are playing some great ball. The campus and people are great."
- "The Texas Tech staff is something different which I like. They're all fun to be around. They kind of remind me of The U from the 80's."
- "Oklahoma is a traditional team that has been great for years. They've got a great coach, they produce, and put people in the NFL."
