Notre Dame Football Recruiting: John Houston Names Top 13 Schools

Inside Linebacker John Houston named his Top 13 schools on Wednesday. Notre Dame remains in the mix for Houston. Along with the Fighting Irish, Houston named Alabama, Arizona State, Arizona, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA and USC.

Houston hails from Gardena, CA. He plays for Junipero Serra High School. He checks in at 6’3″ 211 lbs. He runs a 4.60 40-yard dash.

Houston ranks among the nation’s top Linebackers. 247Sports slots him as the 12th best player. Rivals ranks Houston as the 15th best play nationally. ESPN ranks him significantly lower. They rank him as the 88th best player overall.

The Irish should be considered a long shot for Houston. The Trojans are considered the favorite to land Houston next February. Notre Dame needs to fight to land an official visit to have any chance at signing Houston in February. It is also important to note that Houston spelled Notre Dame as “Norte Dame”. Does he not have any interest or was it a typo?
