Horne Sounds Off at UAA Camp

The month of July has been very good to class of 2016 prospect Jeriah Horne and it’s only half over. We catch up with the 6-7, 205 lb. forward from Overland Park, Kansas in this report.

Jeriah Horne bolstered his recruiting with an outstanding performance at the Under Armour All-American camp in Charlotte, North Carolina last week.

“I got a chance to play against some of the best talent from across the country,” Horne said. “I thought I did pretty well and that I’m capable of playing against the best of the best.”

Among the many coaches watching in Charlotte last week was DePaul associate head coach Rick Carter who liked what he saw as the DePaul staff extended a scholarship offer to Horne.

The collegiate scholarship offers just keep pouring in for Horne, who now has amassed 25 offers.

That includes: Boston University, Bradley, Clemson, DePaul, Duquesne, Iowa State, Kansas State, LaSalle, Loyola Chicago, Loyola Maryland, Miami (OH), Minnesota, Nebraska, Northeastern, Northern Iowa, Pepperdine, Richmond, Rutgers, San Diego, San Francisco, Tulsa, UMKC, West Virginia, Wichita State, and Wofford.

Horne has proven to be a versatile combo forward prospect.

“I see myself where I can play on the perimeter if I have a bigger guy on me, or in the post if I have a smaller guy on me,” said Jeriah.

“Horne is at his best in the high post or the high block, launching soft turnaround jump shots or delivering crisp passes to open teammates,” said Scout.com national analyst Rob Harrington. “He also handles reasonably well for a power forward and can finish inside with either hand.”

At the Under Armour camp, Horne was the 15th best scorer. He averaged 14.2 points per game and 7.2 rebounds per game.

Horne skillsets extends beyond scoring and rebounding though.

“I can pass, I can bring the ball up if needed, I have a high IQ, I can get the team to buy into one goal, and be a leader on and off the court.”

For the moment, Horne is completely focused on his play during the remainder of the July evaluation period.

“As of right now, I’m not thinking about schools too much,” said Horne. “I want to finish July strong and be consistent through the whole summer.”

Jeriah has a pretty good idea of what he is looking for in a school.

“I want to go somewhere where I feel needed and wanted to come and have an impact on the program, where we can win championships, and where I can come in and become a better player on and off the court,” said Horne.
