Brought to you by Wiki: Greenville is home to Furman University one of the best small sports colleges in America. It's alumni include Sam Wyche, Brad Faxon, and Clint Dempsey.

2010 Highlights: Played in 12 games as a true freshman, recording 15 tackles.

2011 Highlights: Houston played in 12 more games, starting 3, while recording 35 more tackles and his first career interception.

2012 Highlights: Houston has played in all 36 games of his career, and he started 8 games in a Nickel/Linebacker/Safety role in 2012 to bring his total starts to 11. Houston added 27 tackles a sack and an interception to help turn the tied at UMass, at the time UB was down 13-0 in the third, but they would go on to win 29-19.

2013 Outlook: Houston is listed as the starting strong safety. It remains to be seen if Witney Sherry can challenge him at that role and push Houston back to a flex or nickel position. At 6' 201, he is the best bet to line up against the tight ends and power runners in the MAC, but will he be able to run with the speed of Ball State and Kent?
