The Louisville (Ky.) Trinity standout officially visited Boston College over the weekend and opted to end his recruitment shortly after the visit.
"They offered him last fall," Trinity coach Mike Szabo told Scout.com. "They've done a great job recruiting him."
"He went on the visit this past weekend he just loved everything about it," he added. "He's excited about the challenge of playing at the highest level in the ACC on a young team that can compete in that league."
Szabo said Hicks, a 6-foot-3 guard, is a good fit for what Boston College does with their guards.
"He feels like he's a guy and I do to, that will fit well into their system and the way they play," Szabo said.
Hicks averaged 16 points and six rebounds a game during his senior season.
"He's been great," Szabo said. "He's been a great kid to coach and a great teammate. He's played on two really good high school teams and he's fit in really well."
"I expect him to go there and be a great teammate and find ways that he can make them better and help them win," he added.
Boston College now has a pair of commitments in the 2013 class. Hicks joins Woodstock (Va.) Massanutten Military Academy standout Garland Owens to make up their current class.
