Big Lousiana Athlete Impressed at MSL
What does he like about each of his favorites?
LSU: "They are close to home, and people need to realize that Louisiana has good players. I'd like to bring that home for my state."
Auburn: "Every year Auburn puts out a linebacker or a defensive lineman, and that's true for the whole SEC. My favorite player is Karlos Dansby."
Michigan State: "I don't know much about their linebackers and defensive linemen, but I figure I could go in and show my skills. I could start a tradition with their linebackers and DL's.
Georgia: "Another SEC school, and they put out players. I like their style of play. Everybody hustles, and nobody ever gives up on the play. It reminds me of my high school."
Miami: "They're gonna contend every year. With pro scouts, that's one of the first schools they go to."
Tulane: "They're close to home if I wanted to stay. A couple of my coaches went there, and I could start a tradition there kind of like I could at Michigan State."
What are the most important factors for Horton?
"I need a good criminal justice program. I'm also looking at style of play, somewhere I can play ball, and a place where I can fulfill my dream of making it to the league."
Alonzo worked out with the DL's at MSL, but he is versatile enough to play linebacker or defensive end at the next level. He's extremely light on his feet, and his agility was unmatched on the day when it came down to individual drills amongst the other other linemen in his group. He will be a candidate for the All-South team in 2005.
