COMMIT: More DLS lightning, Houston to Beavs
Sumner Houston is already 6-3, 265 pounds. He's also a future Beaver.
"I committed to Oregon State today," said Houston, who is ranked the No. 58 DE in the nation.
The Beaver coaches, Houston said, compare him favorably to Dylan Wynn.
"They told me I have a great motor – you know Dylan Wynn? They told me I'm like him in that way (motor), that I'm also very strong and they thought I was a very good all-around player," said Houston.
BUT DOES THAT mean Houston will line up on the edge?
He's already 265 pounds and hasn't even begun his senior season of high school. As he develops, he could possibly move inside.
Or maybe he lines up at a spot altogether different.
"They've said d-lineman -- or maybe on the offensive line. Wherever they want me to play, I'll play, whatever they think is best," said Houston.
HOUSTON CALLED his area recruiter at Oregon State, Bruce Reed, and then also spoke to d-line coach Joe Seumalo to give them the good news.
He pledged Oregon State over offers from Army, Cal Poly, Nevada, New Mexico State, Portland State and UC Davis.
"I felt like it was the right place, I really liked it when I visited 3-4 weeks ago. I like the style of play up there, it's a lot like my high school and that's what I was looking for," said Houston.
