Demariyon Houston will be on Nebraska's campus and enrolled in his first college classes in a matter of weeks.
He's finishing off his high school career at Millwood in Oklahoma City with a bang.
Houston, who goes by "Peanut," won state championships in Oklahoma's Class 3A in the 100 meters, 200 and 4x200-meter relay this weekend to cap a prolific track career.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound receiver turned in a 10.72 seconds in the 100, 21.67 in the 200 and ran the anchor leg of Millwood's 800 meter relay, helping his school to a second-place overall finish.

The video of Millwood's 4x200 team shows Houston taking the baton and easily tracking down several competitors ahead of him to deliver his team the gold in 1:30.93.
"Demariyon is a kid that can really run," NU head coach Scott Frost said when Houston signed. "Our offense, as long as I’ve been in it, has been really successful and dangerous when we have a bunch of people that are weapons and can do a lot with the ball in their hands."
Houston isn't the only speedster in Nebraska's incoming freshman class, of course.
Running back Rahmir Johnson (Oradell, New Jersey) has lofty goals for his senior year at Bergen Catholic and others like receivers Jamie Nance (Blanchard, Oklahoma) and Wan'Dale Robinson (Frankfort, Kentucky) are already on campus as mid-year enrollees.
