Early life and college
Horner grew up in Linwood, New Jersey and attended Holy Spirit High School in Absecon, New Jersey, where he was named the co-press basketball player of the year in 2006. He is an alumnus of the North Carolina State University men's basketball team. In his final season (2009–10), Horner averaged 11.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
After college, Horner started the 2010–11 season with RBC Verviers-Pepinster but after not appearing in a game for them, he signed a contract in Cyprus for club Omonia BC where he played 13 games averaging 11.6 points in 29.3 minutes. Before the 2011–12 season, he made himself eligible for the NBA Development League draft, where he was picked 47th overall by the Springfield Armor, which was in the process of becoming affiliated solely with the NBA's New Jersey Nets. In December, it was announced Horner was one of three players on the Armor invited to Nets' training camp following the 2011 NBA lockout. At that point he had been averaging 15.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists for Springfield. On December 23, the Nets announced that Horner had made the team, and would start the season on the Nets' roster. Horner was waived by the Nets on January 18, 2012. Horner then returned to the Springfield Armor.
