Recruiting: Horton Talks About His Visit

Tight end Justin Horton of Henderson, Texas was the first prospect we could reach that was part of the 10 guests making of official recruiting visits to Oklahoma State. Horton has been committed to the Cowboys since this summer and was one of six visitors this weekend that had previously committed to OSU. Sometimes those recruits end up being somewhat ignored but their impression is important.

"It went fine," said the talented 6-4, 220-pound Horton, who has exceptional speed for his size with a 4.55 in the 40-yard dash. "It (Oklahoma State) has changed a lot (since I was there in August). In many ways it was way more exciting to be there this time."

Horton said he was shown around by redshirt freshman defensive end Jamie Blatnick from Celina, Texas. Horton said it was the players and the way he was treated that was most impressive to him.

"I really thought when I walked in the door that guys would maybe say hey and that's it," he said. "I didn't expect them to treat me as well. Everybody was like, when you walked in, hey, you want to play a game and talking with you. Everyone accepts you right away and accepts you for who you are.

"The food was good, top of the line," was another thing Horton added.

Horton is ranked by Scout as a top 100 prospect in Texas and he was a first team All-District 12-4A selection this past season. He was recruited to OSU by offensive line coach Joe Wickline and will be coached by tight ends coach Doug Meacham.

""Everything is good with me," said Horton. "I'm more committed than I was before my visit. I'm going to Oklahoma State."
