Continuing a recent surge of commitments, Arizona coach Mike Stoops has secured the pledge of four-star linebacker Rob Hankins from Parish Episcopal School in Dallas.
Hankins is considered the 24th-best player in Texas by Scout.com, and the ninth-best middle linebacker in the nation. ESPNU and Rivals.com also rate Hankins No. 9 nationally among inside linebackers.
Rivals.com reports that Hankins (6-foot-1, 219 pounds) has 241 tackles, including 34 for loss, in the past two seasons.
He also had offers from Miami, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Missouri, Oklahoma State, UCLA, Cal, Texas Tech and many others.
Earlier this month, Arizona received a commitment from local star running back Ka’Deem Carey from CDO, Salpointe Catholic offensive lineman Jacob Arzouman, linebacker Hank Hobson from Bakersfield, Calif., running back Jared Baker from Los Angeles, defensive back/athlete Tra’mayne Bondurant from Fairfield, Calif., and safety Kerry Swarn from Dallas.
