I don't really see Houston getting run over..

By: Contrarian

The problem is... i don't really see him period.   How many impact plays has Houston made in the 25 or so games he's started?    He's had a total of 6 tackles for loss in two years as an every down player.  Su'a Cravens, playing a similar position, had 17 tackles for loss in his last year at USC.

Iosefa has been moved over from his OLB position to challenge him for playing time at the MIKE.  It's looking like the two are getting about the same amount of snaps.  Solomon Tuliaupupu is at that position as well, but is being brought along slowly after redshirting last season with a broken foot.  Looked good early in the spring before being sat as a precaution (his foot was sore).  He will be challenging for the playing time.  At 250 pounds, he's the ideal size to handle the position.  Not that it means anything, but he was the national high school defensive player of the year by one major publication (USA Today) in 2017.

Looking forward to seeing Gaoteote at WILL this year.  Great position to play for a head-hunter like him.
