The Houston Cougars may have made one Houston-area prospect's college decision much easier.
Pearland, Texas defensive back Nicholas Saenz had been offered by Rice, Northwestern and Air Force midway through the spring. Houston coaches came through late and offered the first-team, all-district selection.
"I was excited to get the offer and I'm going to take an unofficial visit there next Friday," Saenz said. "If I like it the visit, I'm going to go ahead and commit.
"Anthony Evans went there a couple of years ago, but that was before my time. I just like being close to home and their program."
Saenz will also be visiting LSU's one-day camp and is receiving interest from Virginia Tech, but neither have offered.
