Alfred Joel Horford Reynoso (born June 3, 1986) is a Dominican basketball center for the Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association. He is the son of former NBA player Tito Horford and journalist Arelis Reynoso. He played college basketball at Florida. He was the starting center on both the 2006 and 2007 Division I National Championship teams.

Al Horford attended Grand Ledge High School in Grand Ledge, Michigan, and was a star player on its basketball team. He was rated a four star recruit by rivals.com. He entered college at the University of Florida with fellow incoming freshmen Joakim Noah, Taurean Green, and Corey Brewer. He made an immediate impact as a Gator, starting at center in the front-court with David Lee. He helped the Gators win the 2005 SEC Championship.

He started his sophomore season without many expectations. Many people did not believe that the Gators would be very good in the 2005-06 season, losing three starters from the previous years team. The Gators, with Horford's help, surged through the season winning the SEC Championship. They entered the 2006 NCAA Tournament as a number 3 seed. Horford showed great leadership as he and the Gators swept through the first four rounds to reach the Final Four. The Gators beat the Cinderella story of the tournament, George Mason, to reach the final. Then they beat UCLA in the Championship where Horford had 14 points and 7 rebounds.
