Bruins Watching Houston

The Concord (Calif.) De La Salle defensive lineman, Sumner Houston, will camp with UCLA...

Concord (Calif.) De La Salle defensive end Sumner Houston made a big case on Sunday at the Oregon NFTC for DL MVP.

While Houston didn't land the MVP award, he still opened eyes.

"It was a great opportunity to be here and I was proud of my performance," said Houston. "I thought I did pretty well. I did the bull rush a couple of times, and they don't want that so I know I have to keep on working on my game and bringing it back to De La Salle."

Houston said that because of the Spartans' success, some wanted to matchup against him.

"Everybody in the lines were like ‘De La Salle sucks' and they just wanted to push your buttons," said Houston.

The three-star has offers from Eastern Washington, Nevada and UC Davis and more are interested.

"Oregon State is looking at me, UCLA, Cal, Colorado, Air Force and Army are all interested too," said Houston.

The Oregon NFTC was his first camp and he'll also camp with Oregon State and Colorado and UCLA as well.

He'll also visit the three schools who've offered unofficially.

"Right now, a lot of schools are recruiting me as an offensive lineman, mostly as a center," said Houston. "But Oregon State likes me as a defensive lineman in generally and they would just see how I fit in and UCLA likes me as a nose tackle."

Brandon is in his ninth year with and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
