Cornerback standout played last season at College of San Mateo where he had three picks added to Tigers roster for 2015
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou Football has announced that sophomore cornerback Anthony Hines (South San Francisco, Calif.) has joined the program for the upcoming 2015 season. Hines, a standout corner at College of San Mateo in 2014, will be eligible to play at Mizzou immediately. He is coming off of a freshman season in which he totaled 22.5 tackles, three interceptions and two fumble recoveries. He will have four years to complete three years of remaining eligibility.
A 6-1, 190-pound speedster with great range, Hines helped San Mateo to a 9-2 record in 2014 and was part of a defense that allowed just 15.9 points per game a season ago. The San Mateo defense held its opponents to fewer than 10 points four times last season. His three interceptions tied for the team-lead and he returned one of the interceptions for a touchdown.
Hines was a ballhawk at San Mateo last season, totaling eight pass breakups and 11 passes defensed to go along with his three picks. The eight pass breakups and 11 passes defensed were team-highs by a wide margin. He also showed great versatility, picking up 3.0 tackles for loss and a pair of blocked kicks.
Hines is currently rehabbing an injured left foot which he hurt while training in May but is expected to begin workouts with Mizzou in approximately 2-3 weeks. He will wear No. 1 at Mizzou.
