Wicks sees recruitment pick up

Gerard Wicks had an offer from Washington State and then on Wednesday the Long Beach (Calif.) Poly running back landed offers from Nevada and Colorado State as his recruitment slowly picks up.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound three star prospect said he's going to take his time through the process because many other teams are showing interest.
There is a lot of interest in Washington State but Wicks said he's not ready to make his decision yet.

"There has been a lot of contact with them," Wicks said. "I've been calling them and we talk a lot.
"I think Washington State is going to be a sleeper with their offense and new coach Mike Leach. I think the offense he's going to run is going to be good.
"I'm just going to wait around. The Washington State coach said they're only taking two backs and I think they've offered four. He said the first two commit will be their guys so there's some pressure."
Utah, UCLA, USC, Utah State, Arizona, Arizona State and others are showing interest in Wicks, who rushed for 772 yards and 11 touchdowns in his junior season on a team that was loaded with Division I players.
Wicks said that UCLA would be a frontrunner if the Bruins offered but that has not happened yet.
The Long Beach Poly standout averaged nearly eight yards per carry this past season and he was one of the more impressive running backs at the U.S. Army National Combine over the holidays.
