When you imagine what the perfect linebacker might look like you think big, strong, with explosive change of direction speed.  A guy who’s able to cover sideline to sideline making opposing offenses shake. Our first ever recipient of the TexasHSFootball XENITH  Defensive Player Of The Month Award goes to a linebacker that fits the description.

Anthony Hines III is that proto typical linebacker! The Plano East senior linebacker has 53 solo tackles and 36 assisted tackles for 89 total tackles through in September. Additionally he accounted for six sacks, two forced fumbles, and grabbed two interceptions.

Hines III is considering 90 Division I offers – nearly all from FBS programs – and is the most highly recruited player in his class. Scout and ESPN currently rank him as the no. 1 outside linebacker in the nation.

Currently, he is uncommitted, but is touring college campuses, including extensive visits to Texas schools, according to Bleacher Reporthe’s mulling over Lone Star State options Texas A&M, SMU, TCU, and UT.
