John Houston has proven to be one of the top 2015 linebackers in the West and the offers continue to flood in for the Gardena (Calif.) Serra standout.
Florida State and Washington are the two latest for Houston, a 6-foot-3, 207-pound recruit who looked good at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Chicago a few weeks ago.
Houston said both coaching staffs reached out to him and said they want to be in the sweepstakes and decided offering early was the best way to go.
"Both coaching staffs said they talked about me and they wanted to get an offer out there so they could show their interest in me," Houston said.
Add the Seminoles and the Huskies to the list. Houston also has offers from Florida, Miami, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, Utah and Washington State early on.
Florida State and Washington definitely interest Houston for different reasons. The Seminoles have a track record of putting players in the NFL and have outstanding tradition and history, both appealing to Houston.
Some friends and local recruits play at Washington and have only said positive things so Houston said he's going to take a serious look there as well.
"It's a huge school," Houston said of Florida State. "It's a huge program. It's a big program that does big things and they always send people to the NFL. They're doing major things out there.
"Washington has great coaches and their recruiting has been great. Some of my friends are down there and they're doing really well. All of those guys have good things to say about Washington."
The 2015 prospect said he plans to not rush any decision. Gardena Serra is looking to repeat as state champions and Houston said he's more focused on the season than recruiting at this point.
