One of the more interesting recruitments this spring has been that of Katy (TX) Taylor two way player Camron Horry who has seen his offer list grow at both of his high school positions of defensive end and tight end.
Part of Horry’s arrival onto the scene was likely from his famous father ,longtime NBA player Robert Horry, but his own unique skill set has kept him on college recruiters wish lists. His versatility is a trait coaches have come to covet more and more.
Horry admits the recruiting process has it’s fun times but it isn't all as easy as it seems.
“This process has been exciting but also tough,” said the 6-foot-5, 260 pound standout. “The tough part is you are deciding where you are going to go and that will likely set the tone for the rest of your life. Sometimes it seems easy but sometimes I see alumni whose whole life has been set by what school they go to and then the weight of it feels heavier.”
After working through the process for a while, and narrowing his list of offers to a final three of Houston, LSU and Texas A&M, Horry seems close to a final decision.
“I’ve thought about possibly an early summer decision,” he said. “It is starting to get a little closer to a decision.”
Cougars head coach Tom Herman and his staff have put the full court press on Horry to make sure the local product knows how bad they want him as part of their team.
“I’ve been up to Houston a lot,” he said. “There really isn’t just one or two coaches I deal with. I pretty much deal with all of the staff. They are so welcoming and the atmosphere just feels like home there.”
One of the final hurdles for Horry may be how close to home he wants to be for his college experience.
“I want to go out of state to be able to get the full college experience but then there are times I want to stay home too,” Horry said. “The advantage of being close to home is having somewhere to go during down time. It’s a tough decision to make.”
The one decision that is easy for Horry is the one to keep working to prepare for his senior season. He will play both ways next year so being in the right shape heading into the year will be key.
“I’m just working this summer on being ready for next year,” he said. “I will be playing both ways at tight end and defensive end. My coach has me doing a lot of conditioning and footwork things to be ready for next season.”
