As Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman seeks to increase depth at the running back position, a new offer went out on Wednesday to Columbus (Miss.) prospect Kylin Hill:

The 5’11, 210-pounder committed to the home-state Mississippi State Bulldogs in May after numerous visits to Starkville. Hill committed to Mississippi State over offers from Missouri, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. Since his pledge, he’s seemed solid to the Bulldogs.
A consensus four-star prospect, Hill is the No. 207 prospect nationally, the No. 14 running back, and the No. 5 player in Mississippi, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
As a senior, he averaged nearly 10 yards per carry and scored 24 touchdowns on the ground.
