David (DJ) Hicks Jr. has seen his recruitment explode during the early part of 2021. He’s picked up offers from Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Washington, Texas, and Alabama. This class of 2023 product has produced on the field and in the classroom. According to Hicks’ Twitter profile he currently has a 3.5 GPA. To go along with his great work in the classroom, Hicks Jr. has continued to add good size to an already impressive frame. Hicks looks to dominate opposing offensive linemen this upcoming season and hopefully during camps (assuming most COVID restrictions are lifted) this summer. He stated that his goal was to record 10 sacks this upcoming season, and to become the best player in his class.
Tide Talk Sports was able to conduct an interview with the Katy, Texas standout. He noted that currently Texas A&M and Oklahoma are the two schools recruiting him the hardest. Head coaches Jimbo Fisher and Lincoln Riley have made recruiting the state of Texas a top priority in recent years. Hicks stated on his Twitter post and interview that Alabama coaches Jay Graham and Freddie Roach were the ones to extended an offer to him. Alabama fans may ask what has him intrigued in the school, and the answer was quite simple:
“Alabama is a team that loves to win.”
Education is also an important factor for Hicks, as well as finding the right coaching staff to help him reach the next level.
I would expect his offer sheet to continue to rise. If he continues with his phenomenal study habits and tenacity on the field, the sky is truly the limit for this young man.
