The 2012 recruiting class in the Philadelphia area is one of the strongest in recent memory, with players like Amile Jefferson, Savon Goodman, Daniel Ochefu, and Ryan Arcidiacono all picking up acclaim and offers left and right. While these four players, consensus top 50 players nationally, have spent all summer in the spotlight, other local players are trying to make a name for themselves as well. One of those players is 6'4 Life Center Academy wing Andre Horne.
Andre began his high school career at Philadelphia's Roman Catholic before transferring to Hodgson's Tech in Delaware for his sophomore season. This year, Horne will be at Life Center Academy in Burlington, New Jersey, joining a tremendously talented team featuring stud senior guard John Johnson, a Pitt commit, and star wing LaQuinton Ross, a 2011 Ohio State commit. If Life Center Academy sounds familiar to Hawk fans, it's probably because current SJU freshman Daryus Quarles spent his junior year there.
In the interview with Premo Hoops linked below, Andre Horne talks about his game and the recruiting process. When asked to list his favorites at this point in time, he goes with Pitt, Florida, SJU, and Virginia Tech.
Stay tuned over the coming week as I continue to look at Horne and a couple other new names in the 2012 recruiting class.
