Transferring schools, wearing white crocs, and speaking about his life outside of basketball, Torrence Horton, a rising senior and recent T.C. Williams transfer, wasn't afraid to open up following their 57-51 victory over Churchill on Friday night.
“I chose T.C. because it was recommended and I liked the coaching staff and how they play” the 6’5” guard said as we talked about his move from Paul IV to T.C. Williams following his Junior year.
“At PVI, they had a lot of good players and a strong core and I felt like I wasn’t going to play as much” Horton said. “I definitely feel like I’m a part of the core at T.C. and we have a really great team this year.”
Horton, who is averaging 22 points per game on 46% shooting, proves to be one of the top prospects coming out of this years Capitol Hoops Summer League, and has received interest from programs including Holy Cross, Mount Saint Mary’s, East Carolina, and Southern Mississippi.
“At PVI we were traveling a ton but I wasn’t playing that much, so I wasn’t getting the exposure that I wanted. It’s my senior year, and I asked myself, do I want to play a lot or not?”
Horton believes that T.C. Williams is the perfect spot to get the exposure that he needs.
“We have a lot of good players this year, and we were missing a wing before I transferred.”
Off the court, Horton and many of his teammates showed off their fashion by wearing crocs to their game on Friday. Yeah, that’s right. Crocs.
“We texted in the groupchat that we were going to wear crocs to our game, and for me I just like to have a lot of shoes” Horton said as he was wearing his white crocs during our interview.
Besides basketball, Horton has a passion for drawing and music, referring to Trippie Red, Gunna, Lil Baby, and of course, Drake, as his favorite artists.
“I like Drake on and off the court, with the Raptors. I just like his swag.”
