The Miami Hurricanes will get several big-time prospects on their campus in the month of March. One of them is 2023 five-star defensive lineman David Hicks. He will make a visit to Coral Gables this weekend per Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports.

Hicks is the top player in the state of Texas and the sixth overall player nationally per the 247Sports rankings. Right now, he is predicted to go to Texas A&M via the 247Sports Crystal Ball. He took two unofficial visits to Texas A&M on September 18 and November 6. He also attended the Aggies Junior Day on January 20.

However, the Miami Hurricanes have been known to make strong recruiting pitches to prospects. They will certainly need to do that here.

What could take Hicks bring to Miami Hurricanes?

What could Hicks bring to the Miami Hurricanes? For one, he could bring a pass-rushing presence. He is extremely strong and fast. One of the things I really liked when I was watching his highlights was his versatility. He played very well off the edge, and was able to use his size and speed to get past the offensive lineman. He used his hands and struck quickly in order to get to the quarterback.

That same athleticism was on display when he was playing on the inside as well. He was able to overpower the offensive lineman, and seal running lanes. Hicks was very good at taking proper angles on a play. It seemed like he always stayed square with the ball carrier, and was able to get a good read on the play before it fully developed.

Hicks recorded 13 sacks for Allen High School last year.

The 2023 Miami Hurricanes recruiting class is still being built. However, they do have some good athletes in the class. The class itself ranks 27th nationally and fifth overall and ACC per the 247Sports team rankings.

I’m not expecting Hicks to commit this weekend. It will be nice just to get him on campus, and let the coaching staff try to work their magic. They will have their work cut out for them, as it is difficult to get players to leave the state of Texas. Nevertheless, this coaching staff has the ability to go toe-to-toe in recruiting in even some of the toughest areas.
