CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Having a physical, rushing attack is something Tennessee coach Butch Jones harps on.

The second-year head man also wants a balanced attack between the run and throw game. A back that could help in both departments is Garner (N.C.) High School's Nyheim Hines.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder is rated by Scout as the No. 297 player in the nation.

Ample competition to land the Scout four-star prospect exists as he has over 20 offers. The latest schools to offer the nation's No. 38 runner are all Southeastern Conference opponents of the Big Orange — Florida, Georgia and Vanderbilt.

In his junior season, Hines ran for 3,147 yards with 50 touchdowns. He also reeled in passes for 613 yards and eight more TDs.
