Dual-sport star and Oklahoma commit Cade Horton was named the Gatorade Oklahoma Player of the Year on Thursday.

The Norman High School product recently signed at Oklahoma to play both baseball and football and will be on campus in the fall, barring the MLB Draft. Horton is currently listed as the No. 47 prospect according to MLB.com, where he will likely be drafted as a pitcher, displaying a fastball that peaks at 96 miles per hour.

If Horton ends up attending OU and does not sign to play professional baseball, he will join former two-sport athletes Kyler Murray and Cody Thomas of recent memory.

Despite projecting as a baseball star, Horton also shows promise on the gridiron, where he threw for 3,084 yards, ran for 1,149 yards and scored 41 total touchdowns, while also being an Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State football selection.
