Position: Defensive Back
Exp: High School
Another high school player and member of the Class of 2010 that big things are expected of. Does he get on the field this fall? There is a very good chance as Hicks has all the tools and abilities to compete early.
Strengths: Athletic ability, toughness
Overall: If those ahead of him fail, Hicks could be in a position to push for playing time early. If there is a chance to keep him off the field then it must be done, but any lack of effort or ability of those ahead of him will place the staff in a position to make a choice.
Why He Made The List: The Class of 2010 has already seen three players make early statements about their abilities. Hicks will be in line to also show the coaching staff he's ready and willing to do the work needed to get on the field early.
