It was the third most yards by a freshman in school history.
The Charlotte, N.C., native had 30 catches as a sophomore, but was limited by injuries last season as he finished with six catches for 58 yards.He had a torn shoulder labrum in 2014. North has excellent ball skills and leaping ability and has a penchant for acrobatic catches. Follow me on Twitter; @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
