An Auburn defensive target for the 2023 class has locked in his recruitment date.
Joshua Horton, who hails from Fairburn, Georgia, announced on his Twitter on Friday that he plans to commit to his school of choice on August 19th. Horton has narrowed down his final three schools to Auburn, UCF and North Carolina.
Coach Bryan Harsin would love to bolster the trenches with Horton’s commitment, but it may not be as easy as he’d like. 247Sports currently has Horton with two Crystal Ball predictions to the Tar Heels, so the Tigers may want to ramp up their recruitment for his services in the coming weeks leading up to his commitment in the middle of the month.
Horton visited Auburn officially on June 10, 2022 and was offered in the beginning of the year on Jan. 29 after visiting on Junior Day. It’s clear he was impressed enough to include the Tigers in his last three schools, but the Plains will hope their efforts to recruit him will allow them to win his favor on the day he commits.
