When speaking to Horton on the amount of attention he has been receiving as a sophomore he had the following to say. "It's been pretty overwhelming. It keeps me humble and makes me want to work hard in the weight room to get ready for the season."
Horton has been hearing from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Wisconsin, Clemson, Notre Dame and Vanderbilt. He doesn't have any offers yet, but don't be surprised to see that change in the coming months.
Does this blue chip recruit have any early favorites? "Right now my favorites are Georgia and Notre Dame."
He seems to be a multi-talented athlete playing several different positions on both offense and defense.
"I like to play both receiver and corner, but when the team really needed me in the playoffs I liked to play receiver because they needed me to catch passes. I usually rested on defense during that time, and played full time offense. I also returned kicks."
Where does Horton see himself playing in college? "I would like to play receiver but I would play wherever they need me at the school I choose." Horton has also had to adjust to a new head coach at Greater Atlanta Christian School. Christian Robinson's father was recently promoted to head coach at the school. Robinson is a linebacker in Georgia's incoming 2008 class.
" I love Coach Robinson. I don't think there's a better coach out there than him. I think he's a genius with the way he can always see what's coming on the field."
Summer camps are in Horton's future with trips to Georgia, Clemson, and Notre Dame. He hopes to pick up some offers in the process. "Until then I just want to continue to work hard in the weight room and get faster and stronger. I know my team will need me even more next year."
