Fairburn (Ga.) Langston Hughes three-star defensive lineman Joshua Horton will announce his college commitment August 19.

He will be choosing between Auburn, North Carolina and UCF.

Horton is the No. 945 overall recruit and No. 102 defensive lineman in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $5.9k. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.

RPM gives Auburn the lead in Joshua Horton’s recruitment

The On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine gives Auburn a 95.7% chance of landing a commitment from Joshua Horton.

Horton’s high school teammate and four-star running back Terrance Love is among the Tigers six commits.

RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college. 

It factors in machine learning, social sentiment, visits and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.
