Houston status unclear

The Husky career of running back Michael Houston, which was already in limbo, may never get off the ground.
Rumors have circulated all day that Houston will no longer be part of UW’s plans after RealDawg.com reported that he had decided to transfer.
Houston, reached tonight, said he would neither confirm nor deny those reports.
“I have no comment on anything,” said Houston, who transferred to UW from Texas last August. “Right now there’s a rumor out there, that’s all I can say. … I can’t really say anything right now.”
UW officials would also neither confirm, nor deny, the story about Houston.
Houston redshirted last season after transferring from Texas, where he played sparingly in 2005.
He was indefinitely suspended from the team in October after being arrested on suspicion of stealing a taxi.
UW coach Tyrone Willingham said recently that Houston was now able to take part in team workouts with his playing status unresolved until the legal matters were cleared up.
A spokesman for the King County Prosecutor’s office said today that a decison on whether to charge Houston has not yet been made but could come as soon as next week.
Houston was one of just three tailbacks returning who were with the team in 2005. However, the Huskies signed five running backs in their most recent recruiting class, replenishing the depth in that area.
Also, J.R. Hasty, who sat out last season while ineligible due to academics, has been reported by Willingham and other coaches to be on track to return to full playing status next fall. Hasty will be a sophomore with three years of eligibility left.
