Horner Discusses Camp, Favorites

Among the QBs present at yesterday's camp at OSU was Clayton (OH) Northmont's Tyler Horner. Horner talked about the camp as well as his favorites.

Clayton Northmont quarterback Tyler Horner didn't test as well as he wanted at Saturday's Nike Camp at Ohio State, but overall he thought the day went well.

"My numbers weren't great, but it went pretty good for the most part," Horner said. "I ran a 4.9 in the 40 and I'm usually more in the 4.7-4.8 range, so I was a little disappointed with that.

"My vertical was 29, my shuttle was a 4.3 and I did six reps on the bench (at 185 pounds)."

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Horner passed for 2,300 yards with 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season for 10-2 Northmont.

At the Nike Camp, he said proper footwork was stressed to the quarterbacks.

"They had a lot of feet development drills," Horner said. "Hurdles, form running, cone drills, resistant running, ladders, everything."

Horner does not have any scholarship offers yet. However, he knows they will be coming soon and is considering a long list of schools.

"My dream school is Tennessee - they've always kind of been my favorite," he said. "I also like Miami of Ohio, Purdue, Ohio State and Marshall."

Horner plans on attending "a bunch of camps" this summer, including Ohio State's senior advanced.

He had been to OSU prior to the Nike Camp, but was impressed with the renovations to the WHAC.

"It was really nice," he said. "That was my first time seeing the new turf."

Horner did not make it over to the Buckeyes' jersey scrimmage afterwards.

"I was trying to make it home in time for a baseball game, but didn't make it," he said.

Horner has a 2.9 GPA and got a 19 on the ACT.
