He's a man of his word.
Houston (5-foot-10, 195 pounds) received his offer from Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong on Monday afternoon and committed right on the spot.
"I knew as soon as they offered that that's where I was going to commit," he said. "I've been wanting to go to Texas since I was a kid."
He led North Shore (12-1 in 2013) in rushing attempts (152), yards rushing (1,495) and rushing touchdowns (18) last season.
"I'm a back that really uses his strength and speed," he said. "I haven't run the 40-yard dash this year but last year I ran a 4.4."
Houston, who will be at Texas' spring game this weekend, is the ninth commitment for the Longhorns in 2015 and their second running back pledge along with four-star Jordan Stevenson (Dallas/South Oak Cliff)."I'm excited," he said. "I want to help put Texas back on the map."
