Four-star cornerback Jaycee Horn, son of former NFL wide receiver Joe Horn, has Alabama ahead of the pack

MATTHEWS, N.C. -- Before taking home defensive back MVP at The Opening Charlotte, four-star cornerback prospect Jaycee Horn gave BamaMag the latest in his recruitment.

The spring has been good to four-star cornerback Jaycee Horn.

The Alpharetta (Ga.) prospect has added big-time scholarship offers, pushing his total beyond 30 overall, and impressed at events, even snagging defensive back MVP honors at The Opening Charlotte on Sunday. 

For the last several weeks, one college football program has been in the best position for the steady-rising prospect. 


"They're still on top right now," Horn said. "Spring game, they were showing a lot of love, the fan base was crazy. My relationship with (defensive backs) coach (Derrick) Ansley, we talk a good bit. 

"And it's 'Bama, it don't get no better than that." 


Ansley and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt have led the Crimson Tide's charge for one of the top cornebacks in the South and the son of former NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Joe Horn.

"They like my length, coming in, my ball skills, being able to put my hands on receivers at the line of scrimmage, things like that," he said.

Despite Alabama holding the top spot for his verbal commitment since the A-Day visit on April 22, it doesn't mean a clear end to the recruiting process is in sight just yet. 

"I wasn't going to just commit based off feeling, because I was just there and you get that feeling at a lot of schools, so I wasn't going to just jump," Horn said. "I'm trying to take my time and see where we're at in the future. I'm blessed with the offers I have, to be able to choose between Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, those are pretty big schools. Ohio State, so I'm blessed. 

"As far as timeline, I'm really not sure. Whenever it feels right." 

A return to Tuscaloosa to get in some work with coaches this summer could give the standout Peach State prospect a better idea of what playing for Alabama may be like.

"I might camp at 'Bama, South Carolina," he said. "They just want to see me, coach Ansley and coach Pruitt are going to watch me in spring ball but they want to see me live in person. I worked at their camp when I was like 5'9, but they weren't paying attention.

"It's going to be crazy going back this summer and being one of the recruited guys I looked up to when I was younger." 

Kansas State and Florida Atlantic have offered Horn since his MVP performance in Charlotte.
