Hicks talks about Oregon

Defensive end Akiem Hicks, 6-6, 295, Sacramento Junior College, has a long list of suitors and he took some time to talk about one of his favorites, Oregon.

Akiem Hicks, is a 4-star DT who received an offer from Oregon some time ago and the Ducks are still actively recruiting him.

"I received their (Oregon) offer months ago they're a great program and I am still seriously considering going to their school," Hicks wrote eDuck Sports.

Defensive line coach Michael Gray is whom Hicks has the most contact with. Gray was the first Oregon coach Hicks met.

"He seems to be a great coach and a very genuine person," continued Hicks about Coach Gray. "If Oregon is the school that I decide to go to I'm sure he will be a fantastic coach that will help me evolve as a person."

Hicks says his top-5 schools (in no particular order) are Oregon, Tennessee, Arizona, Florida and Washington.

Last year Hicks finished with over 50 tackles, four sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery that he returned 30 yards for a touchdown. He is originally from Del Campo HS in Fair Oaks CA
