Lamarr Houston recruiting update

Lamarr Houston Jr. (6-4, 258, 4.65) from Colorado Springs, Colorado was one of three juniors to be named first team all-state in Colorado, and he's considered the state's top prospect. Houston now claims 25 scholarship offers, but doesn't favor any school.

As a defensive tackle (five games) and linebacker (five games) Houston had 96 tackles, three fumble recoveries and two sacks. As a fullback he had 70 rushes for 779-yards and 11 touchdowns. He said he'll play tailback and linebacker for Doherty High School in 2005.

"I'm looking at few schools more closely than others," Houston said. "No school really stands out and I don't have any plans to visit any yet. I'm looking for a school that fits my personality and a place I'll feel comfortable at. I don't want it to take a long time for me to adapt to the environment I'll be in."

At Houston's request, has added Michigan, Michigan State, USC, Tennessee LSU and Washington to the list of schools he's interested in. The rest of his list includes Arizona State, Colorado, Colorado State, Nebraska, UCLA, Texas, Texas A&M and Notre Dame.

"I've been offered by every school but USC," Houston said." I would say Michigan, Iowa State, Nebraska and Texas are recruiting me the hardest. To be honest, all schools are recruiting me pretty hard.

Houston is an extremely agile and versatile athlete, and said he's being recruited as an athlete, tailback, fullback and linebacker. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him playing defensive end or defensive tackle in college.

He will not attend any camps or combines during the summer.

"I'm not going to any. Since I have quite a few offers already, I don't think I need to. My coach and I talked about it and he agrees with me." Top Stories
