#STRecruiting: Horton makes return trip to see #Gamecocks

Kylik Horton

Last week unheralded WR Kylic Horton (6-4 180) of Clarendon Hall attended a USC camp, turned in a blazing speed and picked up an offer from Shane Beamer and receivers coach Justin Stepp. Thursday, Horton made a visit to Virginia Tech for a camp and was offered by the Hokies. Friday he returned to Columbia with his parents for an unofficial visit, a tour of the campus and a meeting with Beamer and Stepp.

“I got to explore more of the campus.  I enjoyed it,” Horton said.  “We talked about the student- athlete, the academics.  It was pretty cool.  I like the process, they are considering me.  It’s a nice campus.  People are nice. Everyone from the staff, they are nice.”

There was a feeling in recruiting circles Horton might use this visit as an opportunity to commit to the Gamecocks, if they asked.

“They haven’t asked me.  I haven’t decided yet,” Horton said.  “They are nice people.  I told them that I enjoyed it and I feel like I fit in.  Looking to come in and make an impact.  But I’m going to see what more options I have.”  

Horton has a visit to Coastal Carolina scheduled for next Friday and he plans to take that.
