Standout DE Holding at 2 Offers With Favorite
The 6-4, 215-pounder is one of the quickest and most athletic prospects on the defensive side of the ball in the Bayou State. He has 4.6 speed in the forty yard dash and he also doubles up as a tight end for Abramson.
He projects as a defensive end/outside linebacker at the college level depending on the scheme. However, he could also play inside linebacker because of his instincts and his ability to play from sideline to sideline.
"I play defensive end in the defense we run, but I'm in a linebacker stance," he said. "I have the frame to put on some weight but I'll play wherever they put me."
He already has offers from an SEC and Big 10 power but he is looking at a host of schools. That is unless he gets an offer he is waiting on.
"I got an offer from Auburn and Michigan State," Horton said. "I'm also hearing a lot from LSU, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State and Georgia. I just got back from LSU's scrimmage, and that is my first choice of schools. If LSU offers most likely I'll commit early."
Horton said he really wants to play in the SEC because of several reasons.
"Every team in that conference puts someone at my position in the league (NFL)," he said. "I'm a competitor and I think that is the toughest conference to play in. Every school in the SEC is also pretty close to home."
Horton's competitive nature is one of the things that makes him stand out on the field but definitely not the only thing.
"I make people around me better," he said. "One person can't win a game. I feel like I have more drive than most players and I'm into the game. I love the game and I will do anything to keep playing it."
