Hicks, a 5-11 183 District MVP, recently has been clocked at a 4.5 forty. Hicks explains that he has built a good relationship with Baylor's Defensive Coordinator Brian Norwood.
"He is real good. He is really nice, and he is really helpful."
Hicks explains that his commitment is strong with Baylor.
