Tyler Horne had quite an impressive junior season; throwing for 3,057 yards with 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Those stats did not go unnoticed as teams from around the country have been contacting him.
"Pretty much every major school in the country has been sending me letters," said Horne. "Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee, Florida, and Florida State are the main ones."
Has Notre Dame contacted you? "Yes, they have. Notre Dame is close to offering me. I need to send them a confirmed copy of my transcript and the offer should be soon to follow."
Is Horne interested in the Irish? "Yes, but I need to find out more about them. I need to find out what kind of offense they like to run."
Is the offense one of the important factors in deciding on a school? "Yes. Overall, the school is the most important thing, but I want to go to an offense that likes to throw the ball."
Horne visited Georgia last week and is going to attend the Alabama junior day. He has a busy summer planned as well; he is going to both the Nike and Elite 11 camps.
Irish Eyes asked Horne if he plans on making an early decision. "Right now I plan on taking all my visits, but that could change depending on the school. Right now I'm leaving my options open."
Is distance a problem? "No, not at all."
We asked Horne for his top three choices. "Right now, it would be Georgia, Clemson, and Maryland." Are the Irish in the running? "They're close. I just need to find out more information about them."
Who does his parents like? "They don't care. They just want me to go somewhere where it will benefit me overall."
Horne has a 2.5 GPA and is waiting on his SAT results.
Comments: Horne seems intrigued with the Irish, but like he said, he needs more information before he can really say. Once he gets those questions answered, then we'll get a better indication on where Notre Dame stands with him.
