Hicks planning a return to Gainesville

Fresh off an unofficial visit to Florida to watch the Gators defeat Tennessee, Rivals100 linebacker Jordan Hicks told reporters Monday he plans to return to Gainesville for an official visit in December.
"It was a good visit this weekend, I got to talk to the coaches, get my face in there a little bit," Hicks said during his weekly conference call. "The atmosphere was crazy, it was loud. It was everything I expected. I was impressed."
Quarterback coach Scot Loeffler is Hicks' chief recruiter at Florida.
"We just sat and talked. I have met him before face to face," Hicks said. "We just got the chance to sit down and talk about what I see at Florida and where he envisions me."
Hicks previously laid out his top six choices. They are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Ohio State, Texas, and USC. Hicks has already officially visited Ohio State, he will make an official to Texas in October. With an official visit to Florida planned, that means to see all six schools, he will have to make an unofficial visit to at least one option. NCAA regulations allow prospect to official visit a maximum of five schools. Hicks said Monday that all six schools are still under consideration in his recruitment.
"I will be visiting Texas in October for the Colorado game," Hicks confirmed. "Otherwise, I do not have any other official visit plans at this point. We are trying to get those visits set up."
Hicks visited Ohio State for the USC game.
"Ohio State doesn't really need to show me anything," Hicks said. "It is mainly on me to feel comfortable with them and find out what fits my needs. I like Ohio State. I put my visit up there during the game. I got to sit down and talk with the coaches. I got to see the dorms, which I never got to do that. I like Ohio State a lot, I have a good relationship with the coaches and everything."
For now, Hicks' next trip will be to Austin.
"I am just looking forward to getting down there and being able to talk to everyone again and getting to meet some of the players."
