It has been a busy labor day weekend with a number of official visits, unofficial visits and commitments taking place. Dennis Horner, a 6-foot-7 200-pound small forward from Holy Spirit High School in Absecon, N.J., added his name to the list of committed players today when he decided to play his ball in the ACC.
"It's going to be North Carolina State," said Horner, the No. 91 ranked player in the Rivals150. "It was just unbelievable down there. I took an official visit down there in the spring and then an unofficial this weekend. The tradition is outstanding, they have a great practice facility, and I really like the players and the coaches."
Horner, a versatile small forward who can play inside or outside and handles and passes the ball well, is a perfect fit for NC States' Princeton style offense.
"Their style had a lot to do with me going there," he said. "It is a very good fit for my versatile style."
Horner, whose best ball is ahead of him as he improves his strength, averaged 16 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks per game as a junior.
He was down to West Virginia and Notre Dame, who is was slated to visit later this month.
