Three More for Horton

Three More for Horton

Lakota West (OH) junior Mikel Horton is heating up. Check out which school is currently leading for the running back as well as who he thinks

6-foot-1, 225 pound junior Mikel Horton already holds offers from Kentucky and Indiana. Recently the running back added three more offers.

"My offers now include Kent State, Toledo and Bowling Green."

Horton admits that that one school is standing out.

"Kentucky is my favorite right now."

But don't look for a commitment soon from the junior. He's beginning to hear for several other schools and thinks offers could be on the way.

"Florida State, Michigan State and Alabama have been talking to me a lot. They're telling me to be patient and how there's a process they need to go through but are very interested in me."

Horton has a visit lined up to Alabama on February 22nd and would also like to see Kentucky and Georgia soon.

The junior says he hopes to make his commitment before his senior season. While that could still be months away, he does know what he's looking for in a school.

"I want a place with a great atmosphere, great academics and with a nice campus and facilities. I want to have a family bond with the coaches and players as well. I'd also like for their offense to be more run-oriented as opposed to pass."
