2010's Horton getting lots of early looks

GAC's Julian Horton is getting more popular by the day with some of the South's best schools.

"I'm starting to hear from UCF a lot lately and Auburn has been in contact with me lately also."

Horton is one of the most talented players in the Peach State's class of 2010 and he has the potential to play on either side of the ball. He seems to project as a receiver at the next level but could also play in the secondary posting three interceptions last season to go along his excellent receiving stats.

The addition of a new head coach will also bring some differences in the offense at GAC.

"I think we are going to go to the spread more this year. I like the changes I'm hearing about and I think it will suit the talent that we have."

There is another talented sophomore at GAC in the secondary - Steven Atwater. Horton had nothing but ringing endorsements for him.

"Steven is very talented and he's beginning to hear from a lot of schools too. It would be nice if we could go to the same place to play." Horton has been hitting the weights both with the team and on his own.

"We lift on the mornings on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. I usually try to go and lift in the afternoons with my trainer several days a week or do pushups at home. I'm really working out hard right now and trying to get stronger. On Monday I ran a 4.48 in a little combine we had for my team at the school. I was really excited about that."

He has been hearing from the usual suitors with the addition of Auburn and UCF. Georgia remains his favorite from his list of schools and committing early is something that has crossed his mind.

"I don't have to commit early but it is something I have thought about. If I got the right offer at the right time I would may go ahead and pull the trigger on a commitment. I definitely want to commit before my senior year so that I can just concentrate on playing for my school."

The talented wide receiver from GAC has plenty of time to make a decision and is looking forward to spring practice which starts on May 6.

May 17 is GAC's spring game and Dawg Post will be on hand to see Horton and his teammates in action.
