Quotes from network stories this spring on Michigan's newest commitment Avery Horn (5-10, 180, 4.4) from Hanford, Calif.

The Hanford football head coach, Coach Clark, said about Horn:

"He's got burst speed. He can really accelerate. He's a track man and ran a 10.5 (100m) twice last week."

Soon after his coach's statement, Horn pulled a hamstring, and said:

"I am done running track. I ran back to back 10.5s. That was my fastest time. I tried to run again to qualify and I ended up pulling my hamstring again. I didn't give it enough time."

Back to Head Coach Clark:

"Avery had a great season last year. He scored 24 touchdowns coming on rushing, punt returns and kick returns. Most of them are long runs and he is really jogging in the last 10 yards. He just has so much acceleration. He had 1,800+ yards rushing last year."

"He had one kick return last year that was over his head, caught it about an inch off of the goal line, and ran it back. That was a 99+ yard run back. That was a school record."

Horn again:

"I can break tackles, I'm fast, I'm shifty and they (college coaches) like how I'm patient -- how patient I am when I get a toss and then cut it up."

Horn has also recorded a 35-inch vertical jump.
