Jarrett says that his greatest asset as a receiver is his smoothness. "Stay in control, and on pretty much any route I can go. Doing that kind of confuses the cornerbacks because they don't really know what you're going to do," said Hicks. This has certainly been evident in practices as Hicks makes his routes look effortless. Jarrett also has great catching ability. Hicks has made numerous impressive catches that would have made the highlight shows.
Hicks is looking forward to the opportunity to work with Quarterback B.J. Symons during games. "Let me tell you, he will get it there regardless. It really doesn't matter who's on the other side of the ball, he will find you," said Hicks. He was excited about the way Symons is playing right now, almost three weeks before the season starts. ". I think right now, he's probably at midseason right now. That's scary when you get to the Big Twelve," said Hicks. He expects the offense to be even more explosive in this coming season. "We can definitely put up more points with B.J. back there, and going down field is definitely not a problem with him," said Hicks. "We can go downfield at any time we want, so we can definitely put more points on the board this year."
