Eagles Land In-State Prospect

Eastern Michigan picks up a two-way standout from Detroit Loyola.

Detroit Loyola senior Amos Houston has committed to Eastern Michigan. The 6'3, 210-lb Houston had an offer from Central Michigan as well.

He took an official visit to Ypsilanti last week and says the people he'll be working with for the next few years sealed the deal.

"Mostly the coaches," he responded when asked why he committed. "The coaching staff is amazing. Coach English turned it around and Coach Snow is a great coach. I talked to him for awhile, and Coach [Morrison] the linebackers coach, he's a great guy."

Houston was a big play receiver for Loyola, but made All-State as a defensive back. With his size and ability, the Eagles see him as a guy that could go either way.

"They said I can pick between safety and wide receiver," he reported.

After a long recruiting journey, Houston is happy to be done and know he's headed off to play Division-1 football and a school on the rise.

"It's just a sigh of relief that all the hard work I put in paid off and now I get to further my education and play football at a great school."
