Head Coach Bryan Hodgeson Brings a Legacy Wolf to the pack
On Sunday, aggressively recruited transfer forward Freddy Hicks Jr. declared his allegiance to Bryan Hodgson and Arkansas State, adding another piece to Hodgeson’s rebuild of the Red Wolves. Hicks Junior had visited Arkansas and SMU before committing to the Red Wolves.
Hicks Jr. is the son of Freddy Hicks Sr., who played four seasons with Arkansas State – including the 1999 team that took Arkansas State to the program’s only appearance in the NCAA Basketball Tournament. As a sophomore at Tarlington last season, Hicks Jr. (6’6″ 210-pound) averaged 16.2 points and 6 rebounds.
Hicks Jr., who played his high school ball in Searcy, arrives to Jonesboro with Dyondre Dominguez (6’9″ Jr., UMass) and LaQuill Hardnett (6’8″ Sr. Buffalo), joining a current roster that includes returners Caleb Fields, Terrance Ford, Izaiyah Nelson, Avery Felts, Malcolm Farrington and Parker St. Pierre.
