There could be opportunity for the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Hicks to make an impact at a fullback position where Zander Ogletree is joined by walk-ons Merritt Hall and Dustin Royston. Tailback Richard Samuel also got work at the position this spring and could be a factor.
Ogletree is a 5-foot-10, 224-pound junior.
“Zander Ogletree I think is a great man, but in SEC ball, you’ve got to have the size and I think that’s what he’s missing right now,” Hicks said. “I think I can come in and become great teammates with him and we can do this thing together.”
