Now that college coaches are able to reach out to 2022 student-athletes, Amarillo (TX) center Cade Hornecker has seen more programs get involved with his recruitment.
Wichita State, Kansas State, Oral Roberts, Creighton and TCU have offered so for with Butler, New Mexico, Incarnate Word, Belmont, Oklahoma State, Columbia, Georgia Tech, Baylor, Liberty, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Stanford, UT-Arlington, Virginia, Air Force, Purdue, Ole Miss, BYU, Gonzaga, North Texas and Sam Houston State showing interest.
“Coaches like my fundamentals. I’m a good passer from basically anywhere on the floor,” Hornecker explained. “I feel like I have a lot of potenital as far as how much I can develop over the next two years because I’m only 16 so I’m going to get stronger, and on top of that, I’m 6-foot-11. So that for sure helps.”
“Then, I’d say for as big as I am, I’m a good shooter and I’m a good post player as well.”
Kansas State has taken particular interest in the center and is one of the many programs recruiting him hard. They also have a Zoom call scheduled with Hornecker today.
“[K-State] is recruiting pretty hard. They offered me after the second day we had starting talking,” he said. “Since then, I’ve heard from one of their coaches about every single day.”
While getting stronger is a focus, Hornecker is also working on polishing his skills and adding new elements to his game to continue to gain even more interest and offers in the future.
“More consistently rebounding,” he said. “Ability to score in the post all the time when needed and getting stronger, which I think with getting stronger all that will happen.”
