"I've got offers from Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, Ohio, and I've been talking to UNC. They are coming to see me December 1st. I am talking to Maryland and UVa as well, and I hope they offer."
As for a favorite, among his offering schools, Hicks says that Clemson is in lead.
"It is tough to pick a favorite, but I like UNC because of the way their line plays, and the location. My family has a place down there near the campus."
Hicks has not been able to line up any visits, and the scheduling could be a bit tough.
"I play basketball, so they are all asking me when is best for me to come visit. I'm trying to wait until after I get football over with, since we are still in the playoffs, and I will be able to sit down with my basketball coach to figure that out."
