Millwood (Okla.) receiver Demariyon Houston‍ could be a name to keep an eye on as the page turns to 2019 recruiting. 

The four-star prospect has had communication with Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly and is considering a visit to South Bend this spring. 

“I heard from Brian Kelly,” Houston told Irish Sports Daily. “He invited me down for Junior Day. I have heard from a few other people, and they have been trying to get me to visit. They have said they are very interested in me.” 

With the communication from the head coach, the 6-foot, 165-pounder felt it lets him know there is legitimate interest from the Irish. 

“It really lets me know the school is interested,” stated Houston. “The head coach is important, and he reached out to me.” 

Houston has started to educate himself on the Notre Dame program as he hears more from the Irish. 

“I did a little bit of research on Notre Dame,” explained Houston. “I like them. I think they are waiting for me to visit to offer. I am trying to get to Notre Dame in the spring. I really don’t know yet. I really don’t know yet.” 

The Oklahoma City native didn’t grow up thinking about playing college football, but he did watch Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. He has an offer from the Cowboys in hand, but he has three offers he’d love to get in the next few months.

“Arkansas, Florida State, Michigan, Oklahoma and Purdue are recruiting me and sending a lot of mail,” said Houston. “Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Oregon are three offers I’d like to add.”

Colorado, Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, SMU and Texas Tech have come fast, and Houston is already thinking about what he wants in a program, but also how to handle his recruiting process. 

“I’m enjoying it,” Houston said. “Sometimes it gets overwhelming because a lot of people call and text.” 

“I’m just looking for a school that runs the same offense as mine. We run a West Coast offense and it’s evenly balanced between running and throwing the ball. I want to go to a college that will set me up for life after football too.” 

Regarding visits, Houston will likely get out for a few unofficial visits this spring and wait for his official visits. 

“I think I’m going to save them until the fall,” said Houston. “I’d like to visit for games.”
