The Bulldogs picked up five recruits at Dawg Night and set the recruiting world on fire. What some missed though was the commitment of a very special athlete a few weeks prior.
You do not see many fullbacks with scholarship offers from schools such as Miami, Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Louisville, but Quayvon Hicks is special, and he has earned the right to be recognized as so.
Hicks plays defensive end, tight end, defensive tackle, and fullback at Pierce County High School. He is also a great student that carries a 3.6 GPA. Any football team in the country would be lucky to have him on their roster.
UGA picked up their seventh commitment of the 2012 class when Hicks chose to play fullback at the University of Georgia. The commitment ended what was becoming a drought in some UGA fans eyes. Hicks became the fourth offensive player and the first running back prospect of the class.
At 6'2" and 245 pounds Hicks will start at fullback but has the frame to grow into many different positions, and at his size he would already make a sturdy linebacker. Watching him on video gives you an idea of the kind of player he is.
On defense Hicks excels at block shedding, hits very hard, and has great timing.
On offense he will be a very able lead blocker and when he carries the ball he can be deceptively quick and agile.
The Bulldogs have a history of great fullbacks including Shaun Chapas, Brannan Sutherland, and Bill Hartman. As a leader in the classroom and on the field, Hicks is a valuable commodity that will not go to waste at UGA.
