On September 6th, 2019, it was announced that House would be taking an Olympic redshirt season, sitting out what would have been his junior season with Arizona State to train for the U.S. Olympic Trials. House’s coach, Bob Bowman, commented:
“It made sense when we took into account his academic program over the next couple years and our belief that he would really benefit from an additional year of development,” Bowman said. “It also is a strategically sound long-term move for our team given the class we have coming in 2020.”
