Eric Hicks, one of the University of Cincinnati's much-anticipated basketball recruits, has achieved the necessary standardized college test score to be eligible as a freshman next fall, Dudley (N.C.) High School coach David Price said Monday.
Hicks, the state's 3A Player of the Year, averaged 30.7 points and was just eight points short of the North Carolina single-season scoring record. The 6-foot-6 forward did set state records for blocked shots in one season (210) and for a career (453).
All three recruits who signed national letters of intent to attend UC last November Hicks, Chadd Moore and Armein Kirkland will be academically eligible.
Tony Bobbitt, a fourth recruit who verbally orally committed in January, is expected to sign his letter of intent this week. The shooting guard from the College of Southern Idaho is also expected to take his official recruiting visit this weekend.
