by Andy Hilton, recruitNoVA
Our #4 athlete over came a season ending injury in his sophomore season only to light up the scoreboard in his junior season. That huge junior year was the catalyst for more scholarship offers, and he just recently made his college decision.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in all of Northern Virginia. That’s a tall task, considering that we track the talent at 86 high school programs in the region. Coming into our countdown as the #4 senior prospect region-wide is Flint Hill School running back Jordan Houston.
#4 Jordan Houston (2019 RB 5-9 170) – Flint Hill School
As a freshman, Houston tallied over 1,600 rushing yards.
His sophomore season was cut short due to an early season leg injury. Penn State and Old Dominion were among the first to offer Houston prior to his breakout junior season.
Coming back from the injury, Houston’s junior campaign won him the recruitNoVA Private School Player of the Year award and Flint Hill won the VISAA Division I State Championship.
Last Fall, Houston rushed for 1,971 yards on 166 carries, and had 11 catches for an unprecedented 38-yard average. His 30 touchdowns on the year fueled a Husky offense that averaged over 43 points per game.
Coming into his senior season, Houston is committed to the University of Maryland. He picked the Terps over schools like Virginia Tech, Penn State, Tennessee, North Carolina, Michigan, and Michigan State.
