Frame: Houser boasts an impressive foundational frame. He carries his weight well and exhibits notable upper body strength, with ideal height and wingspan for a tight end.

Athleticism: Despite his height, Houser demonstrates commendable agility and speed. His initial burst, foot speed, and lateral movement are solid, with surprising open-field acceleration. While his vertical leap and on-field strength could improve, they don’t significantly hinder his performance.

Instincts: Whether blocking or receiving, Houser excels. In the passing game, he exploits physical advantages to exploit zone coverage gaps, reminiscent of elite tight ends. Additionally, his ability to navigate short routes and adjust to low or off-target throws showcases his expansive catch radius. As a blocker, he willingly engages defenders, particularly near the line of scrimmage, although his open-field blocking requires refinement.

Polish: Houser’s versatility shines through his varied offensive roles at Wapakoneta. From inline tight end to slot receiver, he demonstrates adaptability and willingness to contribute. While his route running could be more refined, his footwork suggests potential improvement. In blocking, he occasionally relies on brute force over technique, indicating room for development.

Bottom Line: Louisville’s acquisition of Houser presents significant long-term upside. With refinement in certain areas and physical development, he could emerge as a hidden gem in the recruiting class, offering the Cardinals a dynamic weapon on offense.
