No. Step 1: Anthony Hill

Denton (Texas) Ryan Inside linebacker Anthony Hill remains the only linebacker in the five-star rank because he holds his high standards not only in his position group, but also in all the possibilities of the class. Hill has risen one place in the state rankings as he is now nationally just behind Austin (Texas) Westlake Five-Star offensive tackle TJ Shanahan.

Although Hill has some versatility in the Pass Rush game, possibly in a Micah Person-type role, he is the only linebacker to move to Tackett Curtis 61 in the top 50. There will not be much competition in the linebacker position inside, but outside supporters like owner Bryant and Drake Bowen are within significant distance.

Hill’s appointment is in its final stages as he will continue his four-day official tour of Alabama this coming weekend after a trip to Oklahoma this past weekend. Hill will end June with an official visit to the USC on June 17-19 and to Texas on June 24-26. However, the perceived leader is Texas A&M because the Aggies continue to work hard to stay on top despite not landing a summer official. Hill will return to College Station in late July.
