Hankins bleeds red & blue
Scout.com caught up with Dallas (TX) Parish Episcopal linebacker Rob Hankins to check on the progress of his senior season along with his commitment to Arizona. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound four-star defender is getting ready to start the postseason and cannot wait to suit of for the Wildcats. Hankins has been picking up right where he left off after his stellar junior season where he registered a gaudy 136 tackles. He currently has around 120 tackles through the regular season and will look to improve on those numbers in the postseason. "My senior season is looking awesome. We are 9-1 with our first district championship heading into the playoffs. I have around 120 tackles right now and I'm on track to have more than I did last season," said Hankins. The four-star linebacker might be preparing to make a playoff run with his teammates, but he cannot wait to suit up for the Wildcats next year. "My commitment to Arizona is very strong. I even have an Arizona license plate frame and the address marker on my house is painted with two blue and red A's on the side." With so many options from schools across the country, Hankins says he chose Arizona because it's where he felt the most comfortable "When I took a step back from everything and looked at each school with academics, playing time, team, coaches, students etc. in mind I couldn't make a decision. So I just went where I felt most comfortable. Between the team, the coaches, and the students I just feel that's where I belong." Hankins plans to waste no time after his senior season ends. He plans on doing everything possible to prepare himself for life as an Arizona student and a player in the Pac-12. "Somewhere else in the country or the state there is another player doing every possible thing he can do to get better and be number one. My only goal is to outwork him every single day. More specifically, I want to prepare myself physically for the summer in Arizona as well as mentally, so I can grasp the new defense to the same extent as the older players at Arizona." Parish Episcopal takes on Arlington Grace Prep this week in the first round of the playoffs.
