3. Caleb Houstan is a quietly emerging star for the Wolverines

Discussed plenty of times before, we talked about how Caleb Houstan was going to be a very quiet megastar for the Wolverines. He’s not flashy and he does not run his mouth but what he does do is pick up consistently good numbers.

Right now Caleb is averaging 12 points, 4 boards, and 1 assist shooting a little bit over 50% from the field. There are no signs of Caleb’s numbers declining as he put on a 3 point spectacle against Praire View A&M early in the game.

The only knock on Houstan was his turnovers. Houstan alone contributed to almost 1/4 of the total turnovers the Wolverines had against Prairie View A&M. This comes with a young and inexperienced player. Houstan should be a Senior in high school but he’s out here putting up numbers for one of the best teams in the country.

Expect Juwan to help Caleb clean up his turnovers if they become a problem for him. Caleb strikes me as an individual who is willing to put in the work and can take constructive criticism well. I’m so excited to see how his career as a Wolverine plays out this season.
