New Orleans is always home to some of the best prospects in the nation and a player already racking up major attention from the college coaches is New Orleans Abramson weakside defensive end/outside linebacker Alonzo Horton.
Horton, who is 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, has already picked up a scholarship offer from Auburn and is also getting major attention from Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Miami and Tulane. He plans to camp this summer at both LSU and Auburn.
“I’ve always followed Auburn, LSU, Tulane, Mississippi, Georgia and Miami, so it’s really cool to be recruited by all of these guys,” Horton, who had 23 sacks as a junior, said. “I play like Ray Lewis at defensive end. I just go hard and never stop until I make the play or the whistle blows. I love the game of football, and I want to be great in this game.”
That work ethic and natural talent allowed Horton to be named his district’s most valuable player as a junior. He also earned all-state honors, helping Abramson to a 5-5 record on the season.
