One of East Texas' top 2018 recruits has a new opportunity to ponder.

Marshall senior Chasen Hines, who has been committed as an offensive guard to LSU for the past several months, received a new offer to play defense tackle for another powerhouse program.

Hines (6-3, 350) announced through Twitter on Friday that the Texas Longhorns have offered him.

 

He was previously offered by Texas as an offensive linemen by the prior coaching staff, but new Longhorns defensive coordinator Todd Orlando was reportedly on campus in Marshall on Friday morning.

The Marshall standout currently has 17 Division I FBS scholarship offers, but most of them come from schools who are recruiting him as an offensive lineman.

It's been a rough season so far for Hines and his Marshall teammates. The Mavericks enter Friday night's District 16-5A opener at Texas High at 0-4 under first-year head coach Claude Mathis.

Texas is currently 2-2 in its first season under new head coach Tom Herman. The Longhorns are coming off a 17-7 win at Iowa State in the Big 12 opener on Thursday night.

Hines, like all players in their senior year of high school, is first eligible to sign with any Division I program that offers him in December.
