The 6-foot, 185-pound receiver arrived in Lincoln as part of Nebraska’s 2019 recruiting class. He redshirted his first season and added depth in 2020, though he did not appear in a game during his two years as a Husker. He suited up for the Red team but did not record a catch during Saturday’s Red-White Scrimmage.
Houston caught 35 passes for 772 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior at Millwood High School in Oklahoma City and starred in track and field as well.
Houston is the fifth member of the 2019 recruiting class to enter the transfer portal and his departure leaves fellow Oklahoma native Jamie Nance as the only wide receiver from the class still on the team. Wan’Dale Robinson transferred to Kentucky in January while Darien Chase transferred to Portland State after the 2019 season.
Nebraska added a graduate transfer wide receiver this offseason in Samori Toure while Omar Manning, Oliver Martin, Zavier Betts, Will Nixon, Alante Brown and Levi Falck all joined the program last season, and all project to have a chance to see the field in 2021.
Jacob is in his third year with Hail Varsity covering Husker athletics. He has also written extensively for SB Nation’s Bright Side of the Sun and The Creightonian. His love of basketball can best be described as an obsession and if you need to find him, he’s probably in a gym somewhere watching, coaching or playing hoops.
