Brandon Hicks Profile
Brandon Hicks is considered by some to be the state's top linebacker prospect this year. The Jacksonville (Fla.) Forrest standout talked about the latest.
"We're doing alright so far," Hicks said. "We've lost by one touchdown the last two games to Mandarin and Wolfson. We need to get our offense straight. We have a bye week and then next week we play Lee."
Hicks, who has three interceptions in four games, talked about the season he's been having.
"I'm having a pretty good year myself," he said. "I don't know my tackles but it's quite a few and I'm averaging almost an interception a game. I'm gonna be playing some receiver this week and hopefully make some big plays on offense."
Hicks, 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, has not yet scheduled any recruiting visits but plans on doing that soon.
"It's still the same at the top," he said. "Florida and Miami are tied at the top but now Michigan is coming after me pretty strong. I'd say they're next on my list. That's my top three. Michigan recently offered me and I have a lot of interest in them right now."
Hicks said while he doesn't get many chances to watch college football games because of his job, what he sees won't matter too much.
"I visited both Miami and Florida over the summer with my parents so I know what it's really like as a program," he said. "I'd be very happy with either of them."
