Rick Majerus recruited him to join the University of Utah, and Van Horn represented the Utes from 1993 to 1997, becoming one of the greatest basketball players of the university. From 1994 to 1997, Keith was named to the First-team All-WAC, while from 1995 to 1997 he was the WAC Player of the Year. In 1996, Van Horn was selected to the Consensus second-team All-American, and the next year to the Consensus first-team All-American.

The Philadelphia 76ers selected Van Horn as the second pick overall in the 1997 NBA Draft, but immediately traded him to the New Jersey Nets with Lucious Harris, Michael Cage and Don MacLean in exchange for Tim Thomas, Anthony Parker, Jim Jackson and Eric Montross. His rookie season was excellent; Keith led the Nets in points, 19.7 and 6.5 rebounds per game average, and helped New Jersey to enter the playoffs after a four-year absence. The Chicago Bulls swept them, though, but Van Horn was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.

The next season was the best in Van Horn’s career as he averaged 21.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals per game, while in the 2001-02 season, he was an integral part of New Jersey’s path to the NBA Finals, where they were swept by the Los Angeles Lakers.
