Hicks Will Be A Bearcat

Eric Hicks, one of most talented athletes in the nation, made a decision on Thursday. His brother told the Greensboro News and Record that he'd play his college ball in Conference USA.

Hicks To Cincinnati

Athlete Eric Hicks of Greensboro (NC) Dudley committed to Cincinnati on Thursday.

Hicks had a scheduled trip to Florida State this weekend, but that visit will not take place. He also considered UConn and Tennessee, prior to the Volunteers running out of scholarships.

In the grand scheme of things it's hard to imagine a better fit for a player and program. Hicks is a rugged type who essentially is position less. He's the kind of guy you simply put on the floor and let him do his thing.

It's a good bet he'll respond extremely favorably to the tough, intense coaching style of Bob Huggins and this has the makings of a win-win situation for both program and player.

What Hicks does on the floor is rebound, run and dunk. And, he does it well.
