UNC's Top Verbal Commit Isaiah Hicks in Action Class of 2013

Here are some videos taken at J.F. Webb High School of UNC's top verbal commit Isaiah Hicks, who is the number eight overall prospect of the class of 2013. Hicks is listed at 6'8" and 210 lbs., in reality Hicks might be 6'8" maybe 6'7", and only about 195 or 200 lbs.. Hicks is very slender, but does have a more developed lower body. Hicks' body is more of a prototypical swing forward. Hicks is listed as a power foward and may have to play PF at the college level. Still, Hicks is just a junior in high school, so he has time to develop his game and body. You can already see Hicks has some guard skills and could one day, with work develop into a nice three forward. Hicks physically reminds me a little bit of another high ranked recruit from the Tar Heels' past, Marvin Williams.

Hicks has long arms and big hands. Hicks moves efforstlessly down the court and has pretty good body control. Hicks can also shoot and handle the ball well for a player his size. Hicks has tons of potenital, but doesn't seem to be the guy who would come to UNC and dominate, imediately. Sorry, UNC fans Hicks may need sometime to develope. Another negative about Hicks, is that his high school doesn't play the top level competition all the time. In these clips below you will see Hicks(#4) is head and shoulders taller than everyone one the court. Still, Hicks has NBA level athletism and that you can't teach, the other stuff can be learned with hard work and practice.
