He won't be considered habitual. With a prior felony, he will be considered a repeat offender, which will enhance the second degree Burg Hab to a first degree, the range being 5-99, or life.
To be considered habitual, a person has to be proven to have two prior final felony convictions, which would expose that person to 25-99, or life if convicted, and the habitual convictions are proven.
