"He's going to have his press conference [Wednesday] but it's leaked out already," Raymond Hicks Sr. said Tuesday evening.
Hicks' family was enthusiastic about getting with Miami during the coach's first year. "In my opinion, the situation was really good for him and Coach Haith and Coach Fuller were very impressive."
Hicks made a name for himself by playing well this spring with the Texas Blue Chips. However, was able to get a lot done last season when he was named to the Texas High School Basketball Coaches Association All-Stars.
His father says don't call him a late bloomer. "I think he was just sought after late."
Hicks' high game this year was 42 points and he's the school's career scoring leader with 1,487 points.
