Houston picks up second offer

Bart Houston has now picked up his second offer and things are starting to pick up even more for the Concord (Calif.) De La Salle pro-style quarterback who led his team to an undefeated season.
Wisconsin is the latest offer for Houston, a 6-foot-4, 201-pound prospect who threw for 1,922 yards with 20 touchdowns and four interceptions in his junior season. He also rushed for 236 yards and 11 scores.
Colorado offered last week and Duke, Oregon State, Texas Tech and San Diego State are showing interest.

"(Wednesday) morning coach told me to come into his office and call their coach and I knew the number, it was (offensive coordinator and quarterbacks) coach (Paul) Chryst, he coached for coach (Mike) Riley at Oregon State and they're good friends with all my coaches so we gave them a call and they offered," Houston said.
"It's a pro-style offense and that's what I'm looking for. I don't really know any of the coaches personally but one of my coaches told me coach Chryst is really calm, cool and collected. He's a really good guy so that's good."
Both offers are relatively new for Houston so he hasn't scheduled any visits to see Colorado or Wisconsin yet but that could happen moving forward. The Buffaloes offered in late February.
There were rumors in mid-February that Oregon State was Houston's first offer but he denied those claims and said the Beavers had not offered yet.
He is expected to visit Corvallis over the next few months and Houston, who worked out at the U.S. Army National Combine, said the coaches would like to see him throw first before they offer.
This weekend Houston and De La Salle teammate Michael Barton, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound linebacker who has offers from LSU, Oregon State, Washington and Washington State, will visit USC for its junior day.
