Culpeper (Va.) Culpeper County four-star safety Kent Hicks was scheduled to visit Virginia Tech over the weekend, but was unable to make the trek to Blacksburg.
“I didn’t get a chance to make it,” he said. “My brother came up from Norfolk and my dad had to take him back today.
“I wasn’t really sure how to get there, so I had wanted him to go with me. It was just an unofficial, so I haven’t rescheduled anything.”
Hicks visited Virginia on Oct. 17 and said he still intended to take official visits to Virginia Tech, Maryland, and Tennessee before making a decision. The only one he has set so far is to Tennessee on Dec. 12, and he also plans to take an unofficial trip to Knoxville, but is unsure of the date.
Kent said his list of criteria for a college are pretty simple, but he wants to make sure which ones of his favorites meet his requirements.
“Playing time and the coaches, that’s pretty much it,” he said.
He will play in his final high school game this upcoming Friday, so he should have plenty of time in the weeks to come to concentrate on making a decision.
Rated the No. 5 safety prospect in the country by Rivals.com Hicks stands 6-foot-2, weighs 190 pounds, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. He is also the No. overall prospect in the state of Virginia.
