In case you missed it, Perry High School's hard-working 6-foot-9 senior post Miles Houston recently decided on a college program for himself, and will be attending college at Cal Lutheran University next fall. Houston provided excellent depth in the frontcourt for Perry and Head Coach Sam Duane Jr. this past high school season.
Houston is an absolute steal for Cal Lutheran, an NCAA member Division-III program located in Thousand Oaks, California. Head Coach Tim Fusina and his basketball staff will be getting a low-post talent that is capable of scoring inside and out, and has very good potential for the future. Houston runs the floor very well and is a good finisher around the basket, while also being able to score in the low post with a variety of offensive moves, that he will continue to develop in college. He has a soft touch from the perimeter as well, which will allow him to take defenders out to the wing. He is a threat out to 15 - 18 feet, and has excellent overall versatility as a player with good size.
Houston is also an active rebounder and shotblocker, and keeps balls alive for offensive put-backs for his team. He is a very good low post defender and also is capable of defending 4's and 5's, while being able to start the fast-break with rebounds and good outlet passing. He also has excellent work ethic on and off the floor, and is an excellent student with a good attitude.
Houston was one of the state's top performers this spring among the senior class, as he helped lead his Firestorm 17U Elite program, that was coached by Paul Suber, to a couple local tournament championships and a strong undefeated performance in this year's Pangos Spring Live Event in California, during the NCAA Evaluation period.
Houston is a nice find for Cal Lutheran at the Division-III level - proving just how much talent there is in the state, available for college programs at every level.
Congratulations to Houston and his family, as well as the Perry High School program and the Arizona Firestorm program on this accomplishment.
