    I found a photo. Unfortunately, it's from basketball. I'm going to switch him from TE to ATH. He made All-District as a DE and I'm really not sure what position we offered for.

    Made 2nd Team All-District last season in District 8 5A (big boy football).

    I'm still not sure whether we're recruiting as a TE or DE, but it sounds like he's an athlete who can be developed when you look at basketball skills and success on the football field against great high school competition. Wish we had some film to look at.

    Anyone here that has seen Hicks/Plano play?

    Adam did an interview over on Rivals: LINK

    "I have talked to [Buffaloes wide receivers] coach Bobby Kennedy quite a few times and he said they are recruiting me as a tight end but they offered me as an athlete because there is always a chance I could play defensive end if I went there," Hicks said. "I like Colorado. Their fans are great. I went to one of the fan websites and they were very excited about me."

    Guess which fan site? :smile2:

    I'm really hoping that he has a big senior year so we can see him put his natural gifts together... and that he ends up wearing the black & gold.

    Only because we don't have a lot of info to go by since there's no film publicly available. But there have been over a thousand thread views.

    Another DeVaughn Thornton? He has some rare skills that Embree could certainly exploit. Would love to see him join the good guys.
