Dawgs in front for Hicks

According to Quayvon Hicks of Blackshear (Ga.) Pierce County, the junior fullback/defensive end might be several months away from making his commitment.
But on Tuesday, he made it clear one team will be difficult to beat.
When asked who his leader was, Hicks replied, "Georgia … it's always been Georgia."
What makes the Bulldogs, who are recruiting the 6-foot-1, 245-pounder to play fullback (though he thinks he would eventually grow into a defensive end there), stand out above the rest.
"I just love how it makes me feel at home," Hicks said. "It's a lovely place to be. I'm comfortable there."
Right now, another Southeastern Conference program is next in the pecking order.
"I would say it's Tennessee," Hicks said. "Their coaches would like me to play defensive end. I haven't been there yet, but I've talked to the coaches and they have a great coaching staff. That team is building up. They say it's a beautiful place. I hope to find out this summer."
All told, Hicks has eight offers. Besides Georgia and Tennessee, Duke, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Louisville, Miami and Vanderbilt have pulled the trigger. Additionally, Hicks is hearing from Auburn, Florida, Florida State and South Carolina, he said.
Thus far, Georgia is the only school Hicks has visited. He plans to camp there again next weekend.
"I'll be all over the place this summer," he said. "I think I'm going to Auburn, then Alabama and Florida. And I think I'll be camping at Tennessee soon."
The Gamecocks and Tigers might be close to offering, Hicks speculated. South Carolina is "evaluating my film" while Auburn wants him to visit.
"I have to get up there [to Auburn]," he said. "I think if I go visit they'll offer me. They're saying I should get up to the campus, enjoy myself and see how it is there."
According to Hicks, he wants to trim his list of possible destinations sometime this summer.
"I'd like to narrow it down to two schools before the season so I can focus on my team," he said.
