DE Kolton Houston (6-5 265) of Buford, GA already has offers from Clemson and USC and has visited both schools. "I've liked every school I've visited so far," he said.
Speaking about Clemson, Houston loved the academics. "Their academics there blew me away," he said. "I also like Coach (Dabo) Swinney. I think he has a good plan and anybody would want to get on board with him. I think he's going to turn that program around."
He also liked USC. "I just loved Columbia," said Houston. "What an awesome city. Plus, they have (Steve) Spurrier. What needs to be said about him? I loved the new offensive lines coach, (Eric) Wolford." Houston said he went to speak with some offensive linemen in their dorms without letting the coaches know. "Those guys told me the same thing Wolford did. That right there let's you know he's a straight shooter. You got to like that."
Houston has offers from Georgia Tech, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, and Stanford. He is taking an unofficial to Auburn this weekend. He says he wants to give every school an opportunity and does not have any favorites.
