"I was with Terry Henderson, BeeJay Anya, and Lennard Freeman when I was there," Hicks said.  "They were cool guys.  T.J. Warren was there too.  They talked about how much they liked it there and that if I wanted to play against the best players in the country every night then I should go there and play in the ACC.

"I like the tradition at NC State... winning and the ACC.  Plus, the coaches said I'd have the chance, if I earn it, to play major minutes.  They talked about the opportunities there."

Hicks is NC State's second 2016 commitment, as he joins five-star point guard Dennis Smith.   

Pack Pride will have more from Hicks on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
