Malik Horton is a big time 3 star ILB from Langston Hughes HS in Georgia. The talented and athletic 6'3, 230lb caught the eye of the Southern Miss coaches, and now he's picked up an offer from the Golden Eagles.
He's continuing to work hard this summer to improve his game for his important senior season.
"I'm doing everything I can to get better this summer," he told GoldenEaglePride.com.
On the Southern Miss offer, Horton said the coaches laid out a clear plan and what they saw for him.
"They told me I could start right away as a true freshman and be an All-American," he said.
"They said I could have a chance to be a big man on campus and even go to the NFL."
Horton wouldn't give any clue as to how many of his offers were among his favorites, saying only in general terms that every school was in the running.
"I'm going to give every school a chance," he said. "Southern Miss is in my top 10."
He also said he plans to make a decision between August 1st to October 31st.
