2024 Leon Horner Talks Recruitment Progress, Extra w/BIL!

The choice to re-class to 2024 has turned out nice for Leon Horner. A prospect that was recruited primarily however D2’s, JUCOS and flirted with just a few low main D1’s, has now seen his recruitment sky-rocket. He is been contacted by a variety of Division 1 faculties, akin to Mount St. Mary’s, Sam Houston State, UT-Arlington and Hofstra, who’ve all provided. Horner additionally has curiosity from faculties akin to Loyola-Chicago, College of North Texas, South Dakota, Illinois, Xavier, Penn State, SMU and some others. 

He talked to me concerning the determination to re-class. 

“Me and my mother truly talked about it throughout COVID,” Horner stated. “I truly was going to graduate in 2023 at 17. We determined to stay it out at the moment however earlier than the varsity yr ended, me, my mother and my uncle determined it was finest for me to go 2024 as a result of I might nonetheless graduate at 18. Additionally I believed it might assist my recruitment and this spring with Drive Nation and enjoying with Dynamic Prep in June has helped me loads.”

Horner has one official go to scheduled in August on the seventh at Sam Houston State, as he has been speaking to move coach Chris Mudge and assistant Jake White on a constant foundation. He plans on taking an official to UNT and doubtlessly Loyola-Chicago as properly, however hasn’t discovered dates. Anticipate Horner to make a mid-season determination in relation to committing.

“I plan on making a call mid faculty season as I simply need to go to every part first and ensure I’m enjoying someplace that appears like household, has a successful pedigree and the play-style that matches me as a result of I do know in a scenario like that provides me an opportunity to succeed in my final aim which is to play within the NBA someday,” Horner stated.

I perceive the mid-season determination, as I imagine he’ll see an up-tick in his recruitment through the fall as there can be a number of probabilities for Leon to play in entrance of coaches through the fall and common season. Faculty coaches all the time want a giant wing as properly.

Shifting gears, Leon talks about what he feels he brings to the desk.

“I can actually play 1-4. I am going exhausting for rebounds, however individuals primarily see me making photographs and getting on the glass,” Horner stated. “I can change on protection and guard, and I prefer to make performs for my teammates. I like establishing my teammates to attain greater than myself to be sincere.”

Versatility is the phrase that pops out to me when describing the 6-foot-6 wing guard out of Frisco. A play-maker on the wing I really feel is his prototype. Holds high quality positional measurement and energy. Handles and passes it properly off the dwell dribble, a bodily driver to the rim and dependable as a catch and shoot menace. Throughout the 2023 playoff run with Frisco Memorial, I acquired to see him function superb as a secondary/tertiary ball handler, make photographs from deep and help off ball-screens. Nonetheless some work there for him as a decision-maker and scorer off the bounce, however there’s a skill-set he holds that interprets. If he continues to construct and be extra environment friendly, might be a possible all-league man on the proper match.
