Texas schools battling for star linebacker recruit Anthony Hines

Welcome to The Crootletter (sign up to get this in your inbox every morning!). I'm Bud Elliott, SB Nation's National Recruiting Analyst, and in this space I'll be sharing news, rumors and musings on the world of college football recruiting.

Anthony Hines, the nation's No. 2 inside linebacker from Plano (Texas) East could picture himself at Texas -- thanks in part to the Longhorns business school. Baylor will host Hines at its Friday Night Lights event. I'm not sure if Hines is going to end up as the No. 2 linebacker in the country, but he's definitely a good player.

Five-star linebacker Baron Browning, who I profiled on Monday, also had some nice things to say about Texas, as well.

Viva the Matadors sent a pair of writers to attend Nike's The Opening Regional in Dallas, and they liked what they saw from a handful of important Texas Tech targets.

Keyshawn Johnson Jr. is deciding next week, and while Nebraska looks to be in good position for the four-star receiver, there is also a chance that Ohio State could land him.

Oklahoma State's 2017 wish list includes some of the nation's most sought-after recruits. Cowboys Ride for Free broke down the latest offensive players to receive a scholarship offer from Mike Gundy and company.

Oregon reached out to the state of Georgia to offer four-star WR Deejay Dallas on Wednesday.

Michigan has a cache of big name recruits headed to Ann Arbor to watch the Wolverines' spring game.

Missouri doubled the size of its 2017 class by adding three-star OL Hyrin White.

Arkansas offered a scholarship to Hall of Famer Keith Jackson's son.
