Horne is a 6-foot-1 guard out of Raleigh, North Carolina, who has played for Illinois State and Arizona State. He has played four seasons in his college career, averaging at least 12 points per game in each of the last three. Horne has hit at least 70 three pointers in each of the last two seasons, shooting 36% from beyond the arch in both campaigns.
Arizona State received a bid to the NCAA Tournament, and it was due in large part to the play of Horne down the stretch. In 11 of 14 games in February and March, Horne scored in double-digits, including eight games where he scored 15 or more points. In ASU’s two tournament games, Horne a team-high 20 points against Nevada and 17 points against TCU.
Pitt has now reached out to at least 13 transfers in the portal. Out of those 13, seven averaged at least ten points per game, and just three (Myles Stute, Joe Girard III, and Horne) hit more than 70 threes this season.
D J would be a great addition to a young backcourt for the Panthers next year.. Coming from a successful bb program like ASU would be a nice transition to the ACC nightly competition..
