A handful of 2017 recruits will also be in Lubbock this weekend, and Anthony Hines might be the most coveted of the 2017 prospects to visit Texas Tech.

Quality OLB’s are desired by every program in the country, and one look at the sophomore’s offer list suggests that he will be in high demand come 2017. The 6’2”, 215 lb. outside linebacker already has an offer list as long as the drive from Lubbock to Houston.

Some of the notable schools to offer Hines are Arkansas, Baylor, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Michigan St., Notre Dame, OU, Ole Miss, Texas, Texas A&M, and UCLA. It is safe to assume that this offer list will continue to explode over the next two seasons.

Hines will be tough for Tech to land, but he could be a difference-maker at one of Tech’s most needed positions.
