After visiting Nebraska over the weekend, KC Run GMC power forward Jeriah Horne is a Cornhusker. The 6-foot-7 senior plays at Barstow School in Kansas City.
The 2016 three-star prospect picked the Huskers over DePaul, but also had offers from Kansas State, Iowa State, Bradley, Tulsa, West Virginia, Wichita State, Minnesota, Clemson and Minnesota among others.
"Nebraska's focus on player development, solid academics, and challenging athletic environment," said Horne, when he responded to Big Red Report's text on the biggest reason why he committed.
Horne joins Scout.com four-star prospect Isaiah Roby as the only other member of the 2016 class.
“I think Jeriah is going to be a very solid player,” said Scout.com national recruiting analyst Brian Snow. “He is undersized and he isn't a great athlete, but he just knows how to play and is productive. He can score on the low block, and is someone who has good skill out to about 15 feet. I think he will fit in well and Miles will use his unique skill set to its best ability. Even though he isn't the most highly rated player, he is someone who I anticipate having a very solid career at Nebraska.”
At the Under Armour All-Americna camp in Charlotte, North Carolina this summer, Horne improved his stock by averaging 14.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.
“It was a good summer,” said Horne in a previous Scout.com interview. “I had fun playing with my teammates and playing against the best competition from all over the country, and I think I played as hard as I could.”
Horne talked about his visit to Nebraska with Scout.com on Monday.
"Coach Miles sees me as a 3 or 4 in his system," said Horne. "I would be able to play great with Isaiah Roby (four-star commit) because we complement each other...I feel like I had a chemistry with everyone on the team.”
