Darryl Hicks today announced his intentions to join the Boston College Golden Eagles.
The Louisville (Ky.) Trinity guard visited Boston College over the weekend and that sealed the deal for him.
“They offered him last fall,” Trinity coach Mike Szabo told Scout.com’s Evan Daniels who broke the news. “They’ve done a great job recruiting him. He went on the visit this past weekend he just loved everything about it. He’s excited about the challenge of playing at the highest level in the ACC on a young team that can compete in that league.”
The ACC will be loaded next year and Hicks is wise to join a conference that will test his abilities every day and only make him a better player. Hicks averaged over 16 points during his senior season, and he will have the chance to shine as an offensive option with the Eagles. He will be entering the ACC along with blue chippers Jabari Parker and Anthony “the Cat” Barber. That kind of competition will be great for Hicks.
“He feels like he’s a guy and I do to, that will fit well into their system and the way they play,” Szabo said.
Boston College now has two commitments in the 2013 class, and they will do their best to contend in a competitive ACC next year.
