Hicks hopes to find an home soon

This season, one of the most explosive JUCO wideouts in the country was Fresno City's Trent Hicks (6-0, 185) and he's been attracting several D-1 programs even though he may have an issue with his clock. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented receiver recently and he updated us on the situation...

"I'm waiting to find out, but it looks like I'm only going to have a year of eligibility wherever I sign," Hicks told JCFootball.com recently. "I started school right away, but I didn't start playing football right away, so my clock started and I wasn't aware of that.

"I might have to go D-2, but some of the D-1 schools recruiting me have said they are still willing to take me because of my skills and my productivity."

Those schools include Kentucky, Oregon State, Arkansas State, New Mexico, San Diego State, Portland State and Abilene Christian.

"Kentucky wants me out there in January for sure for a visit and I'm going to set that up in the next week or so," Hicks noted. "Portland State was just down at our school today and they said they are still very interested in me.

"The other schools are still talking to me a lot and like me, but they want to check things out a little more."

In 2010, Hicks played mainly out of the slot and hauled in 23 receptions for 485 yards and five touchdowns, but this season he was much more explosive playing on the outside, hauling in 39 receptions for 805 yards and 14 touchdowns.

"I was a lot more elusive this year than I was before and I just made plays when I had the chance," Hicks noted.

We will continue to keep track of Hicks' progress over the coming weeks and update news as it breaks.
