Texas Tech Basketball | 2024-25 Eligibility Chart Version 7.0

Catching up from over the weekend. Frisco guard Leon Horner III (6-6/195) committed to Texas Tech. Horner didn’t have a ton of big offers but he’s played on some big teams, playing for Dynamic Prep and then his club team is Drive Nation. That’s not a mistake in the sense that Dynamic Prep is a school started by former NBA’er Jermaine O’Neal and Drive Nation is also a club operated by O’Neal. Typically, only the best of the best play for Drive Nation and if you want to read more about both programs, check out this Texas Monthly article:

Dynamic Prep has only been a school for two years. Its regular-season record was 21–1 , and ESPN has it at number 14 in the nation. The only other Texas team in the rankings is Plano East Senior High, at number 24. “They have the most talented team in Texas,” said Sam Lowe, director of the Metroplex-based Great American Shoot-Out, which scouts players and holds offseason tournaments across Texas.

Three of Dynamic Prep’s players are in GASO’s top hundred seniors in the state: number 35 guard-wing Leon Horner, number 42 point guard Jaylen Washington, and number 67 forward Malachi Hayes. Three more are in GASO’s top thirty Texas juniors: number 8 center Jaden Toombs, number 10 forward Jermaine O’Neal Jr., and number 29 combo guard Leroy Kelly IV.

We’ve talked about how there are certain programs out there and just playing for them is a sure sign that you are a high-end player and this is that. Knowing that Kellen Buffington is plugged into the DFW hoops scene as much as anyone and it is likely that Horner is under-recruited even though he plays on one of the best teams in the state of Texas. Horner was able to average double-figures for one of the best teams in the nation also says something, that he’s good enough to get his shots and the coaches trust him to get his shots off.

I linked this yesterday, but check out Red Raider Sports’ Ben Golan on Horner’s commitment:

Per his MaxPreps profile, Horner III averaged 12.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 steals per game as a senior, helping lead Dynamic Prep to a 23-1 season capped off by a Texas Christian Athletic League (TCAL) 6A State Championship.

Back in December, Horner III was named the National Bracket MVP at the Chick-fil-A Classic after averaging 22.5 points and 6.5 rebounds on 56% shooting in wins over Prolific Prep and Dream City Christian.

He’s a do-it-all, versatile prospect who is looking forward to doing whatever it takes to help the Red Raiders win games.

“I’m gonna bring to the floor most definitely winning and competing. Doing anything I could do to help my team win games and lead us to a national championship. I’m gonna play hard for sure. I’m gonna be relentless on the offensive side and the defensive side, which is offensive rebounding, defensive rebounding and all that. Scoring the ball, playmaking. I’m gonna bring a lot to the table.”
