6/12/17 - Drafted in the first round, 24th overall by the Boston Red Sox. 

2/2/14 - Houck’s performance at the Super 60 solidified his status as one of the premier right-handed prospects in the Midwest. At 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, the Missouri recruit has an athletic, projectable frame, one that can easily handle more weight in the future. Houck’s fastball was a clear standout among a list of top-level arms. Aside from sitting 92-93 mph with his fastball, it was his late, hard arm-side life that separated Houck from his peers. Providing further separation from the pack was his three-pitch arsenal, all of which had sharp, late action. His changeup, in the 83-85 mph range, showed the makings of being a big swing-and-miss pitch, as he throws it with fastball arm action and has late sink down in the zone. Houck also threw his 74-77 mph slider with similar conviction. Operating from a high three-quarter slot, his arm is loose and works quickly. With a few minor mechanical adjustments, and as he naturally fills into his frame, Houck should continue to see velocity jumps, just as he experienced from his junior year to now.

2/17/13 - Athletic frame with length, 6-foot-5, 190-pound right handed pitcher, very projectable frame. Tall and fall style delivery, rhythm is smooth, slower tempo. Arm action is long, quick arm, operates from a high ¾ arm slot. Fastball has hard run, thrown with command, 86-87 mph, touches 88 mph, maintains velocity from the stretch, also showed cut fastball at 83-84 mph. Curveball has 11/5 shape, arm speed decelerates, 72-73 mph, thrown for strikes, works the bottom of the zone. Splitter is thrown with arm speed, has sink, stays on top and keeps down, 78-79 mph. Highly projectable right handed pitcher, arm works well and frame will continue to develop. Missouri recruit.

Committed to Missouri in the winter of his junior year.
