Believe it or not, there’s a place for a fullback in Urban Meyer’s offense.
Late Wednesday Night, Dublin Scioto’s William Houston announced via twitter that he had accepted an offer to be a part of Ohio State’s 2013 class as a “preferred walk-on”.
That designation means that he will pay his own way to Ohio State until he is awarded a scholarship by the staff; and won’t count against the Buckeyes’ award total, which is depleted as a part of the NCAA Sanctions. It is believed that he held a similar offer from Michigan; he chose Ohio State over a full scholarship offer from Bowling Green.
Houston is a “3 star” fullback, and is listed as the fifth best in the country by several recruiting services. The 6′ senior is listed at 235 pounds with a 4.46 forty yard dash time, and is an Ohio State legacy- he’s the son of former OSU fullback Willie Houston. He amassed over 1000 total yards this season, as well as 17 touchdowns.

Already a Buckeye, it’s great to have you officially a part of the family, William!
