Josh Hicks Profile
The Old Dominion Monarchs moved swiftly to lock up a senior on the rise. Winston-Salem (N.C.) Mount Tabor senior wing guard Josh Hicks committed to Blaine Taylor's program over the weekend.
"The relationship's I developed with the Coach Corrigan and Coach Taylor were key in my recruitment," Hicks said. "The coaching staff and I really connected during the recruiting process. I feel the Old Dominion basketball program is headed in the right direction and hopefully I can help maintain the tradition that past player's have set."
This time last season, Hicks was fighting for attention. Two teammates — C.J. Harris and Mike Grace — already committed to Wake Forest and Yale, respectively and now its Hicks' turn. He's averaging 17.1 points and 8.6 rebounds for one of the state's top teams. Mount Tabor is 19-1.
"Josh Hicks is a special person and player," Mount Tabor coach Andy Muse said. "He is a young man with high character and has grown as a person through this recruiting process. Josh is a very good student at Mount Tabor High School and has a opportunity to play in the CAA because he got the job done in the classroom and on the court."
