2013 SG Darryl Hicks Commits To Boston College

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Darryl Hicks, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Louisville, Kentucky, has committed to Boston College.

Darryl Hicks, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Louisville, Kentucky, has committed to Boston College, according to the Courier-Journal's Jason Frakes.

Hicks, who plays for Trinity High School in St. Matthews, Kentucky, choses Boston College over claimed offers from Arizona, Cincinnati, Florida State, Florida International, Indiana and Western Kentucky. One of five finalists for Kentucky's Mr. Basketball honors, Hicks committed to Donahue and the Eagles after taking an official visit to Boston College over the weekend. He had previously taken an official visit to Western Kentucky.

The shooting guard averaged 16 points and 5.3 rebounds as a senior this past season, leading Trinity to Kentucky's Seventh Region Tournament finals. As a junior, he averaged 12.1 a game, helping lead his HS to the state title.

Here's EagleAboveTheRim's scouting report on Hicks:

Hicks was described by recruiting services to be a very strong scorer. He's a solid shooter and has the quickness and athleticism to drive the ball to the rim. His defense is solid as well. Also, the fact that he can play both guard positions can really earn him time in Donahue's system, which is a guard-centered system that requires a lot of running and 3 point shots.

Hicks is one of those guys who really doesn't have a huge weakness, but of course he's not without his faults as a player. He seems to be a bit streaky as a shooter, and he's only an average rebounder.

Hicks joins Virginia small forward Garland Owens in the incoming recruiting Class of 2013 and should provide some needed backcourt depth behind Hanlan, Rahon and Jackson. Barring any roster attrition, Donahue has two scholarships left to give out over the next two classes.

Scholarship breakdown by class:

- Seniors (0)
- Juniors (7) -- Eddie Odio, K.C. Caudill, Ryan Anderson, Lonnie Jackson, Dennis Clifford, Patrick Heckmann, Alex Dragicevich
- Sophomores (2) -- Olivier Hanlan, Joe Rahon
- Freshmen (2) -- Darryl Hicks, Garland Owens
- Remaining Spots (2)

Highlights:

Welcome to the Heights, Darryl.
