Juco running back picks Heels

North Carolina added a running back to its 2011 class today, one day before national signing day.

Stephen Houston, an honorable mention junior college All-American at Independence Community College in Kansas, has committed to the Tar Heels.

Houston is 5-foot-10 and 220 pounds and originally signed with Mississippi out of Lakota West High in West Chester, Ohio.

“He’s a big, strong runner and he’s got speed for a big guy,” said Independence coach Steve Carson.

Houston fills a positional need for North Carolina after running back Savon Huggins of Jersey City, N.J., committed to Rutgers on Friday.

Larry Cox, who coached Houston at Lakota West, measured him with a 33-inch vertical leap and a 10-foot, 3-inch standing long jump in high school. He said that after Houston did not qualify academically for his scholarship at Mississippi, he spent his first year of junior college redshirting and concentrating on his school work.

Houston played just one year of junior college football and has three years of eligibility remaining.

“They expect him to be able to have an impact,” Cox said, “and they expect him to be able to play for three years.”
