"My next official visit will be to UCLA," Hines confirmed. "They play Utah."
Hines used his first official visit on week one of the season to Texas A&M, when the Aggies defeated UCLA, so this will be his second chance to see the Bruins in action in 2016. He used his second official visit to see Penn State knock off Temple. His third official visit was to Florida and the Gators destroyed Missouri.
On every one of his trips thus far the host school has triumphed, so that could be good news for UCLA, which will be looking for its second conference win.
Hines has one official visit remaining and is approaching a Nov. 29 announcement date.
In addition to UCLA, UF, PSU and A&M, Hines is also considering offers from schools like Auburn, Florida, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU and Texas.
Hines is rated as the No. 1 ILB in the nation, the No. 19 overall prospect in the Scout Top 100.
He has been selected to participate in the Under Armour All-America Game in Orlando, Fla., January 1, 2017. The game will begin at 1:00 pm EST / 12:00 CST and air nationally on ESPN.
As a junior in 2015, Hines racked up 205 tackles, 24 tackles for a loss and eight sacks to earn All-District, All-State, Scout All-Midlands, Scout Underclassman All-American and USA Today All-American honors.
