Aggies Commit Anthony Hill Debuts as No. 3 LB in 2023 SI 99 Recruiting Rankings

Hill is one of the top 50 players in the country according to Sports Illustrated

The Texas A&M Aggies landed their top commitment of the 2023 class last month when Ryan (Denton, TX) star Anthony Hill pledged to Jimbo Fisher's program.

Across the board, he is one of the highest-rated linebackers in the class. And on Tuesday, that continued to be the case, with Hill coming in as the No. 48 overall recruit in Sports Illustrated's 2023 SI99 rankings.

Hill also came in as the No. 3 overall linebacker in the country, behind only uncommitted prospect Qua Russaw and Georgia commit Troy Bowles. Aggies' target and Longhorns hybrid linebacker/edge commit Derion Gullette also came in at No. 45 overall but is listed by Sports Illustrated as a defensive end. 

An excellent fit in DJ Durkin's defensive system, Hill exploded onto the scene with the Raiders in 2020 as a sophomore, being named a first-team MaxPreps Sophomore All-American and the District 5-5A-I Defensive Newcomer of the Year, all while helping his team to an undefeated season a state championship.

That season, Hill Amassed 105 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, three sacks and two forced fumbles.
