After a general meltdown against Notre Dame it was hard to predict how the Vols would perform…
Scouting Report: Cedric Houston
Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 215 40: 4.55
The Good: Athletic ball carrier with the speed and quickness necessary for the outside as well as the shiftiness needed to pick up yards in the middle of the field. Runs with forward lean, displays quickness as well as a burst through the hole. Bounces it around piles or sets up defenders and makes them miss. Has a slashing style and the ability to slide off defenders. Solid receiver who extends to grab the pass out of the air and runs well after the reception.
The Bad: Indecisive and not instinctive. Must be more cognizant and careful with ball security. Durability is an issue.
The Skinny: A prospect that flashes greatness on occasion, Houston's career has been marred with injury and inconsistency. Looking like a one-man show and feature ball carrier at times, Houston also comes across as nothing more than a straight-line running back that cannot create. And while he teases scouts, Houston's physical skill also tantalizes them, which could garner him; a top 60 pick next April.
