We all fell in love with the graduate transfer this year. Damion Lee and Trey Lewis led us to a Final Four worthy season. (let me dream) One thing we can not do is assume that every Graduate Transfer will be the same though. My gut feeling is that Tony Hicks will be somewhere between Lee & Lewis as far as a Basketball player but is on par with them as a person. A friend of mine Jeff Greer ( He has friends) took time this weekend to talk to Tony Hicks and did a wonderful job as the interview has a ton of nuggets in it that will help you to get to know him. Here are a few:
- He never thought he would play College Basketball, he was a QB
- In High School he played against Cardinal Forever Wayne Blackshear
- He was also considering Oregon
There are a ton of interesting things he said in his interview with Jeff Greer. Give it a look. You all know how picky I am with stuff and I don’t just share anything. I really enjoyed it. Read at the link here. Also there is a video link below to watch the interview. Also a few Highlight Reels. Enjoy. Go Cards!
