"Coach Rodriguez told me," Hicks explained, "He pulled me aside after got done with scrimmage. I talked to defensive backs coach (Tony Gibson) and Coach Singletary, but they were practicing, so I didn't talk to them that much. I talked to them more after."
The 5'10, 175-lb Hicks now has offers from the Wolverines, Spartans, Central Michigan, Vanderbilt, Eastern Michigan and Toledo. He says he does not currently have a favorite, but Michigan is a place he will consider heavily.
"The school overall is a pretty good school. I like it from a football aspect and education. Of course, they have a big stadium. It's somewhere I can fit it."
While watching the Wolverines practice, he paid close attention to their secondary and he liked what he saw out of the cornerbacks.
"Their DB's are good, I could see where I could fit in. I like their schemes and like the way they let the corners play bump and run and man. That's what I'm used to."
"Well, it really hasn't changed," he said of a timetable, "I'm not rushing. I don't really know when I'm going to pick a school, might be before the season, it might be during."
For now, he just plans to bask in the glow of the two latest offers.
"I mean, I got both of them in the same week. I'm very excited by both. It caught me by surprise, but to have both is a wonderful feeling."
