Mark Stoops picked up his 3rd verbal commit of the Class of 2014 this afternoon. Horton joins the Cats as one of the most powerful running backs in the Midwest. Even though the Air Raid is seen as pass-friendly, the Cats will need a big back to get them into the End Zone, rather than settling for Field Goals in the Red Zone. Stoops continues to impress the best of the best in Ohio, with more to come in the future.
Horton is the 3rd Running Back to commit to Stoops and Running Backs Coach Chad Scott, joining JoJo Kemp and Nebraska transfer Braylon Heard.
