Five-star linebacker Anthony Hill Jr. of Denton (TX) Ryan High has narrowed his list to two schools– Texas and Texas A&M.

The 6-foot-2, 220 pounder went in depth on his finalists

Texas 

“The staff had put together a good weekend on my OV, and talking football and the plans of the future, with coach Pkay, choate, and Sark was really big on making this decision,” Hill said. “ Getting to play with 2 of my old teammates would be a plus as well.”

Texas A&M 

“Over the last 3 years Texas A&M has been really constant with recruiting me,” Hill said. “With coach Santucci, and getting to play with a great D-line would be big.”

Anthony Hill Jr. Scouting Summary

“Downhill linebacker with good size and straight-line speed,” On3’s Director of Scouting Charles Power wrote. “Has starred for one of the top defenses in Texas high school football since his sophomore season. Combines his speed with a high effort level, resulting in a highly productive player at the high school level. At his best when he can use his closing speed as a blitzer or in pursuit sideline-to-sideline. Shows some physicality as a striker.”

“Has one of the longer wing-spans of top linebackers in the 2023 cycle. Provides added value as a pass rusher and may eventually grow into an EDGE prospect down the line. Has a penchant for forcing turnovers and looks to strip the football often. Will need to continue improving his skills playing in space and in coverage.”

Hill ranks as the No. 14 player in the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that accounts for all four major recruiting sites. He also tabs in as the No.1 linebacker and the No. 2 player in the state of Texas.
