Following the recent transfer of yet another defensive tackle, the Texas Longhorns extended a new offer to Marshall offensive guard Chasen Hines on Friday:

The 6’2.5, 350-pounder committed to the LSU Tigers in March over an offer from the ‘Horns as an offensive guard.
But it sounds like he might have some interest in playing on the defensive side of the ball:

Considering that his 247Sports Crystal Ball was unanimous in favor of LSU at the time of his commitment, the offer defensively might be the only thing that could convince him to change his mind.
Texas currently has a pledge from Houston Westfield defensive tackle Keondre Coburn, but likely wants to add at least two more players at the position after losing Jordan Elliott, Marcel Southall, and Chris Daniels over the last several months.
Hines is a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 11 offensive guard and No. 32 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
