Evaluation Notes: Malik Horton made the move to Georgia from South Carolina a few months ago and he has seen his recruitment take off. It is easy to see why after watching him practice for a couple of hours. At his size (6-foot-3, 230 pounds), he can move. I first saw him at a 7-on-7 (briefly), and he caught my attention. Then after watching him do drills, work in coverage, and see him move laterally at Fairburn (Ga.) Langston Hughes, I was impressed. He plays hard. He was leading the way in sprints at the end of practice much of the time. He leaves it all on the field. He is very coachable. There is a lot to like about Horton. He can be an inside linebacker, outside linebacker or edge rusher on the next level depending on what scheme he goes into. He has the ability to blitz or to take on the run in between the tackles. There is still plenty of room for improvement — in areas like shedding blocks, tackling technique, playing through traffic, and reading his keys, but he has some real upside.
