Prospect Profile: Reuben Houston


Full Name: Reuben Houston School: Georgia Tech Pos: CB

Ht: 6-0 Wt: 192 40: 4.64 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore, posting 70/3/8, and then 48/3/3 as a junior. Suspended for nine games as a senior after being arrested in connection with a marijuana distribution operation.

Pos: Nice-sized defensive back who displayed flashes of brilliance early in college. Physical, fluid pedaling in reverse and smooth transitioning to run with opponents. Possesses a break to the throw and works to make plays. Adequate job reading receiver's eyes and locating the ball.

Neg: Stiff pedaling in reverse, cannot quickly break to the ball and displays only average playing speed.

Analysis: Looking like a star early in college, Houston watched his play level off before legal problems sidelined him most of last season. Has the physical skills to make it at the next level, but must quickly get his game back on track.
