Status quo for Houston
Kolton Houston name does not appear on the Georgia's pre-spring roster, but according to sports information director Claude Felton, there apparently is still hope he will one day play.
"Kolton is currently not working out with the team which is the same as has been the case since his NCAA eligibility has been in question," Felton said in a statement. "But his status is the same as last fall. He's still on scholarship and work still being done to restore his eligibility as has been the case the last 2-3 years."
Houston has been unable to play following a positive test on April 13 of 2010 for Norandrolone, a performance enhancing substance, which despite a battery of tests, apparently failed to exit the player's system.
"Prior to coming to Georgia, (Houston) unknowingly was given a substance that was banned by the NCAA. He tested positive for that; it wasn't like a recreational drug or anything like that, it had something to do, I guess, with something that took place during the process of the surgery," Richt said last August. "He's probably been tested more times than anybody in the history of college football and we're 100 percent certain he has not taken anything or has continued to take this thing, but it has never completely gotten out of his system and not declared eligible to play."
Houston - who was never able to suit up for the Bulldogs -could not immediately be reached for comment.
