Texas A&M lands prized recruit David Hicks
The six-foot-four, 270-pound prospect chose the Aggies over numerous offers, including Oklahoma, Oregon, and Texas.
"They have a really great coaching staff, and I have a really great relationship with everyone on staff," Hicks said. "They've been recruiting me since eighth grade, and I can stay close to home."
Hicks is considered the No. 17 overall prospect and third-ranked defensive tackle in the class of 2023, according to ESPN 300.
The Katy, Texas, native is considered a five-star prospect by other recruiting services.
Head coach Jimbo Fisher's squad has continued to dominate the recruiting trail after producing the top class in 2022. The Aggies have clearly made in-state prospects a priority after gaining a verbal pledge from linebacker Anthony Hill, the No. 1 recruit in Texas, this past July.
Texas A&M has quickly become a favorite destination for defensive recruits. Hicks is now the 13th ESPN 300 defensive lineman to commit to the Aggies over the past three years, according to VanHaaren.
