St. John’s University men’s soccer program signs local standout Will Horn
With the start of the spring season just weeks away, the St. John’s University men’s soccer program has added another commitment to its 2021 recruiting class, as the Johnnies recently picked up a pledge from local standout Will Horn.
Horn, a Montclair, N.J., product who was born in New York City, comes to Queens following a standout prep career at Montclair Kimberley Academy. A four-year starter and two-year team captain, Horn scored seven goals this past fall, helping the Cougars to an 8-5-1 finish and a no. 18 ranking in the state of New Jersey. In his first three high school seasons, Horn helped lead MKA to an overall record of 40-18-5 with three consecutive appearances in the New Jersey Non-Public B Finals.
“Will is a very hardworking, intelligent player that will fit in perfectly with our culture here at St. John’s,” said Head Coach Dr. Dave Masur. “He’ll bring not only depth, but a solid sense of leadership to our team.”
For his efforts, Horn was recently named to the East roster for the 2020 High School All-America Game, which because of COVID will be played on May 29 in St. Louis.
A three-time All-State selection by the New Jersey Independent School Athletic Association and a two-time non-public All-State selection by NJ.com, Horn was named a Regional All-American by United Soccer Coaches this past fall. Horn was also a three-time First Team All-Essex County selection.
On the club circuit, Horn played for Cedar Stars Development Academy, tallying seven goals over three seasons as a right back and center back.
