Texas not only gained a big recruit on Thursday, but they also had the added benefit of taking him away from a rival.

Linebacker recruit Anthony Hill decommitted from Texas A&M in November. On Thursday, we learned that he committed to the Longhorns.

Listed at 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, Hill is rated by 247 Sports’ composite rankings as a 5-star prospect and the No. 1 linebacker in the country. He attends Billy Ryan High School in Denton, Texas.

The addition of Hill gives Texas the No. 3-rated recruiting class for 2023. They have three players rated as No. 1 at their position for 2023.

The Longhorns’ recruiting class for 2023 is headed by quarterback Arch Manning.

Texas is 8-4 this season and will face Washington in the Alamo Bowl on December 28.
