"Recruiting is still going great," says the 6-foot-3, 232 pounder. "I haven't heard anybody talk about offering yet. My favorites are (North) Carolina and Tennessee, though."
The Tar Heels will have an opportunity to look at Hickman up close very soon.
"I am going to Carolina on the 24th of this month. I want to stay in-state if possible."
