Word on the burnt orange streets is that Texas Longhorns linebacker Anthony Hill, a true freshman, has been turning heads during Texas’ spring practice offseason routine this year.
From 247Sports, who recently described Hill as one of the nation’s most-talked about players this offseason: “Thanks to a star-studded 2023 signing class, Texas has several impact first-year players, but Hill is a contributor to be relied upon heavily on the defensive side. With DeMarvion Overshown departing to the NFL, there’s a void in the middle of the Texas defense that Hill is going to fill. Overshown was a converted safety and Hill has some of those same freakish abilities as a ballhawk and a player the Longhorns expect to help in rushing the passer.”
