Caleb Houstan is an athletic, skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He is a sharpshooter that excels at knocking down outside shots, and he also can make energetic hustle plays on both ends of the floor. He has also played well in big games, as he helped Montverde Academy win the 2021 GEICO Nationals. He is a solid, all-around player, and he could be a solid candidate to go in the top 5 in the 2022 draft.
