LB Matthew Adams says yes to Houston

The Cougars have secured a commitment from 2014 linebacker Matthew Adams (Missouri City, Texas/Hightower), multiple sources report.

Air Force, Boise State, New Mexico, North Texas, Rice, Southern Methodist, Texas Southern, Texas State and Tulsa also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot, 203-pound defender.

Adams does not have any BCS offers at this time, but several programs including Iowa State, LSU, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas and Utah expressed interest.

He posted an electronically timed 4.91 40-yard dash, 4.32 20-yard shuttle, 33.4-inch vertical, 38-foot, power throw and 90.18 SPARQ this spring at a Nike combine.

The Cougars have picked up six of their eight verbals in June.
