With the addition of Oklahoma City native Demariyon Houston, Texas now has its third wide receiver of the 2019 class. Houston is an intriguing prospect that Texas was not very interested in until recently. Over the past week or so, the Texas staff really started pressing Houston on the advantages of moving from Oklahoma to Austin. Before that, Houston was set to stay close to home and play for Mike Gundy at Oklahoma State.
As a prospect, Houston is certainly intriguing. At 6’0, 165 pounds, he will need to work rigorously with Yancy McKnight in order to be physically ready to hit the field. On the field, Houston is a good take as an inside receiver. He has lateral quickness and a good ability to get inside the numbers when the defense is in man coverage. With that being said, it will take some time for him to be ready to contribute on this roster. Once he is ready, he can make a solid impact at a position that will need depth after this year and 2019.
