Houston getting used to college life

Adjusting to college life can sometimes be a difficult chore, but early enrollee Kolton Houston said earlier this week he's doing just fine.

He joked that new roommate A.J. Harmon is helping see to that.

"There were no openings for roommates except with A.J., two baseball players and a tennis player," Houston smiled. "I just decided I'd go with A.J."

Along with Jakar Hamilton, Houston is one of Georgia's two lone early enrollees for 2010 and anxious to get his college career underway.

"I'm finding my way to class, so I guess I can't complain too much," joked Houston, who joins former prep teammate Dallas Lee as the second offensive lineman from local prep power Buford to sign with the Bulldogs in as many years.

Like Houston, Lee enrolled early at Georgia last year before redshirting the 2009 campaign.

"It's definitely going to be fun," Houston said. "We talked a lot about it, and he talked about how much he thought it helped him. He said if I could do it, I just do it as well."

Houston said that offensive line coach Stacy Searels has told him he would be worked out at both tackle and guard.

Either position is fine with him.

"I just want to get an edge on some of the other players, get stronger and learn the playbook so when the others get here I will already know all that stuff," Houston said. "Basically, it's all about getting adjusted to college life without the practice stress you have in the summer and the fall."

Houston, who committed to Georgia during last April's G-Day game, is glad for the recruiting process to be over as well.

Although he remained solid to the Bulldogs throughout the process, that didn't keep other schools from calling trying to get him to change his mind.

"They called but I told them I was signed, sealed and delivered," Houston said. "I wasn't going anywhere else."
