"We verbally committed to the Wildcats today," said Jamelle's father Johnny. "Tell the world about it, tell the world."
Horne, a 6-8 wing from San Diego Senior High School is the third 2007 player to commit to the Wildcats. He's Scout.com's No. 12 small forward and a four-star recruit. He joins center Alex Jacobson and guard Jerryd Bayless in pledging to the Cats.
"Him, Jerryd and Chase could be crazy," said Horne's AAU coach Etop Udo-Ema. "That could be one unbelievable backcourt."
Horne is very athletic, but has a great feel for the game. He can pass, defend and rebound as well as score.
"He has a chance to be whatever he wants to be," Udo-Ema said.
The Horne family was having dinner when we called to confirm the commitment and we will have an interview later this evening.
