Mikel Horton, RB, Liberty Township (Ohio) Lakota East (2014)

One of the biggest running backs in attendance, Horton can move at that size and has the makings of a future bigtime recruit.

Catching Up with Mikel Horton

By Alex Gleitman - 31 May 2012

Ohio State already has an outstanding running back in Ezekiel Elliott locked up for the class of 2013 and continues to be in pursuit of other players at the position to possibly add to the St. Louis area star.

That pursuit has not stood in the way of the staff looking ahead though, as there are a number of 2014 running back contacts that the staff has been in touch with, including Lakota East's Mikel Horton.

The 6-1/225 Horton has been making the combine/camp rounds this spring and so far the returns are good. He is quickly rising up recruiting boards and is establishing himself as one of the top players in the state for his class.

We got the chance to catch up with Horton to see what schools have been in touch with him, how he feels about the Buckeyes, what visits he has planned, and more. Join us after the jump to catch up with one of the top 2014 prospects in Ohio, Mikel Horton.

How did your sophomore season go? How did your team do and how did you perform?

My sophomore season was good, but we could have done a lot better as we went 4-6 on the year. I had 150 carries on the season for 700 yards with 9 touchdowns.

I know it's early but how is recruiting going so far? What offers do you have and who have you been hearing a lot from?

Recruiting has been going well. I do not currently have any offers right now but a lot of schools have been looking at me. Ohio State, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Alabama, and LSU are the schools that have been in touch the most, but there are other schools in contact as well.

I know Ohio State is interested in you. Who is recruiting you for the Buckeyes?

Coach Coombs is recruiting me from Ohio State and I have a great relationship with him.

How do you feel about Ohio State and their program?

I love Ohio State because I am from Ohio and I feel that it is a program that fits me well.

What visits have you taken so far? What visits do you have planned?

I have only been to Cincinnati so far and loved that visit. I am planning on visiting Ohio State, Michigan State, Alabama, Wisconsin, and Notre Dame in the near future.

Continued......

RB Mikel Horton, West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West: The 6-foot-1, 230-pound back is a bruising runner who is good between the tackles. However, his running style did not lend itself to big plays as a sophomore, when he averaged just 4.4 yards per carry. This summer, Horton has proven to be a top performer at every regional event. The Challenge will present a chance to go against some very good linebackers and defensive backs. Horton canprove he's a true all-around back and not just a player that can move the chains when needed.
