    THE HURRY-UP: DAVID HICKS JR. BUILDING STRONG TIES TO OHIO STATE, HOPES TO VISIT CAMPUS IN THE FALL

    At 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds and boasting a five-star rating, Hicks Jr. is a monster in the defensive trenches. He uses his size and intelligence to disrupt running lanes and put pressure on opposing passers.

    “He’s probably the smartest kid I’ve ever coached,” the elder Hicks said. “I’m not just saying that because he’s my son. It’s rare that he’ll get beat on the same play twice.”

    Since Hicks Jr.'s Pop Warner days, the elder Hicks has passed on different techniques to his son such as making pre-snap reads and shifts. But life isn’t all about football with the duo.

    “The hardest thing is not taking things home with us,” Hicks Sr. said. “We talk football so much that we have to flip the switch where I go back to Dad rather than coach.”

    Hicks Jr. is the 18th-best recruit nationally and the fifth-best defensive line prospect in the class of 2023, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He picked up an offer from Ohio State on June 15 after excelling in a workout at a camp with OSU defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

    “(I really like) the culture there and the coaching staff,” Hicks Jr. told Eleven Warriors about Ohio State on Sunday.
