On Friday, 2023 defensive lineman David Hicks Jr. announced his top seven schools. One of the schools listed was Alabama. The other six programs in the mix are Texas A&M, Texas, Oregon, Miami, Michigan State and Oklahoma.

Hicks Jr. is regarded as a five-star according to 247Sports’ recruiting rankings. He is listed at 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds. Interestingly enough, his size likely comes from his father. David Hicks Sr. played linebacker at Grambling State in the early 2000s before entering the pros. He is also a former bodybuilder in the state of Texas.

Although Hicks Jr. received his offer in March of 2021, he hasn’t taken any kind of visit to Alabama. Since the dead period opened up at the beginning of June, he took three official visits and one unofficial visit to other programs. The Texas native took his official visits to Michigan State (June 3), Miami (June 10), and Oregon (June 17). Then, he took a last-minute unofficial visit to Texas A&M on June 25.

The Tide have their work cut out for them if they still plan on recruiting Hicks Jr. It won’t be easy prying him away from the midwest. We will wait and see how his recruitment plays out in the future.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow Alabama football and the recruiting trail.
