Late verbal commitment signs with LSU

The decision of Bay City, Texas, linebacker Archie McDaniel to de-commit from LSU to Texas A&M left the Tigers with an additional scholarship. The staff wasted no time in offering it to Cohen defensive back Troy Hankton, who promptly committed to the Tigers and followed through with a signed letter of intent.

Hankton was a first team all-district choice as both a junior and senior and was named Co-MVP for his senir year. He made 25 receptions for 481 yards and four touchdowns on offense in 2001 and had a pair of interceptions on defense. For his career, Hankton had eight interceptions and returned two for touchdowns.

A standout on the Cohen track team, Hankton finished fourth in the Class 4A state championship last year in the 110-meter hurdles.
