-Chris Horton posted the second-longest wingspan at the camp (7'4) and the largest height (no shoes)-wingspan differential with a margin of 9 (99th percentile). The only current NBA player in our database with a bigger differential is Rockets big man Montrezl Harrell. At 225 pounds, Horton isn't nearly the physical specimen that Harrell is, and his overall skill set is still a work in progress after an average year with Grand Rapids.

Austin Peay big man Chris Horton is one of the most productive players in college basketball, averaging a tremendous 21.8 points, 14 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 2 blocks per-40 minutes. He's struggled badly historically over the last four years against BCS level competition, seeing his numbers drop off dramatically, though, so this will be a great opportunity for him to show he can compete against comparably long and athletic players.

Horton is a physical player who mostly relies on his brute strength to bully low-major big men inside the paint, although he does show nice touch around the basket. He pursues loose balls with quickness and timing, often going out of his area impressively with an excellent second bounce. He struggles when forced to operate outside of the paint, though, and has had difficulty finishing over length. Defensively, he mostly lives off his instincts, and does not have great fundamentals.

As an undersized center without a great deal of skill, feel or freakish athleticism, this is a huge opportunity to show what he can do against one of the best teams in college basketball.
