The future looks bright for Texas' defense, but adding an elite linebacker would help Todd Orlando's group shine even more.

The Texas Longhorns offered four-star outside linebacker Channing Tindall on Monday, he announced on Twitter.

The 6'2, 213-pounder is the No. 122 overall player in the class of 2018, and the No. 5 outside linebacker prospect.

The Columbia (S.C) native may be hard to sway from his hometown Gamecocks, as 83 percent of 247's Crystal Ball experts predict Tindall to choose South Carolina.

The Gamecocks were the first Division 1 school to offer Tindall, extending a scholarship to him in October of last year.

Florida State is also in hot pursuit of the U.S. Army All-American, and the remaining 17 percent of 247's Crystal Ball experts anticipate Tindall siding with the Seminoles.

The Longhorns currently hold one outside linebacker commit in three-star Fort Worth Eastern Hills product Byron Hobbs.

With Naashon Hughes graduating and Malik Jefferson possibly departing for the NFL after this season, Texas is looking to add more talent at the linebacker position for the class of 2018.
