Al Horford’s younger brother Jon Horford has committed to play for John Beilein at the University of Michigan. The younger Horford played his high school ball at Grand Ledge in Michigan. The 6’9″ 185 pound post player is rated a three star recruit by rivals.com.
Michigan’s rivals site TheWolverine.com had this to say about Horford:
At 6-9, Horford, a Rivals.com three-star prospect nationally, was dominant on the defensive end and a workhorse on both ends. He does most of his scoring in the paint, boasting good footwork and great hands and very good passing ability from the post. He’s not a shooter but continues to work on stepping out and can knock shots down.
Sounds a lot like his older brother. I’m confident he can develop a perimeter shot when needed. While Michigan had a disappointing season this year John Beilein is one of the best in the business.
