Ks. '19 DE Marcus Hicks is 'very interested' in Michigan

Wichita (Ks.) Northwest High 2019 defensive end Marcus Hicks is "very interested" in Michigan.

At 6-foot-5, 220-pounds, it’s easy to see why notable programs Oklahoma State and Kansas State have already offered Wichita (Ks.) Northwest High 2019 defensive end Marcus Hicks.

And his interest from top schools doesn’t stop there.

In fact, Hicks participated in one of Michigan’s satellite camps in 2016, and that’s where U-M headman, Jim Harbaugh, first approached him with interest from the Wolverines.

“It was really fun,” Hicks said of his satellite camp experience. “We got to really get ourselves out there and experience what the college workouts are like at Michigan. (Jim Harbaugh) said I’m on the right track and I’m definitely going to be recruited by Michigan.”

“I’m very interested (in Michigan). My dad, he’s from (Detroit) Michigan. He’s actually been talking a lot about them. So I’m very interested in them.”

Adding, that his father has a certain loyalty to the Maize & Blue, too.

“He’s a huge Michigan fan,” Hicks said.

And if the Wolverines were to offer, what would it mean to Hicks?

“It would mean a lot,” he said. “It would be one of the happiest things to happen to me.”

Hicks also noted he would like to eventually visit U-M’s campus, and would camp this summer if possible.

“It is something I would like to go up there and do,” he said of camping at Michigan. “I’m expecting to see the regular stuff we see at my practice and to see myself grow up there.”
