At this time, those three schools lead for his Signing Day sig...
Thoughts on TCU?
"They're close to home, a good school, good team and they had a good season. At one point, they were ranked No. 6 this season and they went to a good bowl game."
Tight end/special teams coach Dan Sharp is recruiting Hines for the Horned Frogs.
"Not as close as TCU, but they're still close to home. They're bringin' in a lot of good players and rebuilding their team."
The Bears have tasked safeties coach Larry Hoeffer and offensive line coach Chris Lancaster with the responsibility of landing the 6-1.5, 202-pound athlete.
"They'd be something different from the other schools I'm looking at. They're farther away from home, offer a different environment and they've been to four straight bowl games. They have a great program and would be a great place to shine."
Defensive back coaches Dave Brown and Johnny Barr are recruiting the 2-star prep for the Red Raiders.
Hines, an athlete on the gridiron, isn't too shabby on the hardwood either.
"I average about 20 points, 5-6 rebounds, 4 assists and 2-3 steals a game."
His track and field exploits are impressive also. Kid runs on both the 4X100- and 4X200-relay teams and was a regional qualifier in the triple jump (45'8").
We'd be remiss if we didn't also point out his weightroom numbers: 290 bench, 430 squat, 240 power clean.
Needless to say, this kid offers quite bit to the three schools in his list of faves, but only one will be fortunate enough to earn his commitment.
