Let me re-phrase: Horne "could be one of ..."

I am not prone to hyperbole and so am not saying that he is currently the best ever. He has the potential. He is mobile, gets off the floor quickly, has good hands, and can finish. For his limited role, he understands how to operate in the offense. He showed similar moves to Blackshear in traffic.

Blackshear is better, has more skills and footwork right now. Blackshear also needs to be stronger, more physical and avoid throwing up some stuff off-balanced just because he has the ball in his hand.

I did not or am not saying he is better than Collins or Allen yet. They had their weaknesses but they produced. I would take LeDay right now over a freshman Horne right now as well. LeDay did tend to force things against 2-3 people and needed to pass it out more. He was tough and played under-sized just like Horne will have to do. But Horne will end up being more mobile and quicker. Horne may not develop the outside shot that LeDay occasionally took but you never know.

Thanks for the response.
