Hanna, 6-4, 220, chose the Hogs over preferred walk-on offers from Alabama and TCU. He visited all three schools.
As a senior, Hanna finished with 90 tackles, 19 unassisted, 19 tackles for loss, eight sacks, 12 quarterback hurries and one fumble recovery. He helped the Bulldogs to back-to-back Class 6A state championships.
He visited Arkansas on Jan. 21 then went to TCU on Jan. 26 and spent this past Saturday at Alabama. He also had a preferred walk-on offer from UCA. He had scholarship offers from Arkansas Tech, McPherson College, Missouri Southern, Ouachita Baptist and Henderson State.
