After recently visiting Ohio State, a class of 2017 linebacker will announce his commitment soon. Taking to Twitter to state his plans, four-star standout Anthony Hines (Plano, TX / Plano East) will officially be off the board on Dec. 2.

Down to six programs, Ohio State, Florida, Penn State, TCU, Texas A&M and UCLA, Hines, who made the trek from Plano, Texas to Columbus, Ohio for the Buckeyes matchup with Nebraska earlier this month, received around 90 full ride scholarship offers from colleges around the country throughout the recruiting process.

One of the most sought after prospects on the high school level, the Under Armour All-American racked up well over 600 total tackles during his time with the Plano East Panthers.

Although Ohio State is always looking to add talent to the team, all signs point towards Hines suiting up on the college level elsewhere. At the moment many around the recruiting scene are pegging the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder to end up with the Texas A&M Aggies.
