Houston talks Trojans

ESPN 300 LB John Houston Jr. took time out at the IMG 7v7 West Regional on Sunday to talk to WeAreSC's Blair Angulo about how the recruiting process is coming along, and specifically, his thoughts regarding USC.

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. -- At first, John Houston Jr. got a good laugh out of the fake Twitter account using his name.

The ESPN 300 linebacker was flattered, in a sense, knowing someone out there thought highly enough of him to pretend to be him. An impersonation meant all of his work on the field had earned him enough recognition.

Then, when the fake account suddenly announced a March 24 commitment to USC, Houston had a problem.
