THE LATEST: There was a lot of thought Cleveland could be narrowing in on his decision and Oklahoma, TCU, and Houston were all thought to be high on his list. Thursday afternoon he announced his decision on Twitter. He was "staying home" to play for Tom Herman and the Houston Cougars.
PROSPECT ANALYSIS: Cleveland has some nice size at 6-foot-3 and 180-pounds. He also has some speed and explosiveness to go along with that size. He does a good job of putting all of those gifts to good use on the field. He's a dynamic receiver who does not mind physical coverage, runs solid routes, and has exceptional body control and reliable hands. His quick feet allow him to change direction in a hurry and in that Houston offense there is little doubt he will fit in well.
RECRUITING IMPACT: Cleveland's commitment is definitely a big one for the Cougars. He joins Rivals250 receiver Courtney Lark in the Houston class. He also joins his close friend and teammate Ed Oliver who was the first of the Rivals250 commitments for Houston. The shock value is not quite as big as it used to be, but it does not diminish the importance of the commitment for Houston.
