Anthony Hill, LB

It seems like the two most important recruits remaining for the Longhorns 2023 class that are committed elsewhere at the moment are the highly touted four-star Austin Westlake edge rusher and Oklahoma commit Colton Vasek and the elite five-star Denton-Ryan linebacker and Texas A&M commit Anthony Hill. Texas is definitely keeping the foot on the gas this fall with both Hill and Vasek, despite their commitments to other rival schools.

If there is one priority five-star recruit committed elsewhere at the moment that I believe Texas has a legit shot at flipping before the first signing day, it will be Hill.

Hill is still the top remaining linebacker recruit for the Longhorns 2023 class, which is a major position of need. Given some of the losses that Texas is bound to experience at the linebacker position next offseason, namely with senior linebacker DeMarvion Overshown, getting an immediate impact true freshman in the mix next year such as Hill would be invaluable.

Prior to Hill’s commitment to the Aggies late in the summer, it looked like Texas was making some real headway in his recruitment. At one point after his official visit to Austin in June, it even looked like Texas might have the slight lead over the Aggies in the race to land a commitment from Hill.

There might not be a more interesting recruitment to watch down the stretch this fall for Texas, at least among the prospects currently committed elsewhere, than Hill. Texas looks to have a legit shot to flip this commitment, especially with the way that both the Longhorns and Aggies are trending on the field through the first half of this season.
