What you should know:

  • The last of the pre-signing-day commits, Wicks is definitely an under-the-radar steal for the Hoos. Credit to Ricky Brumfield and Louisiana area scout Jordan Arcement for finding Wicks and getting the rest of the staff sold on him.
  • Watching his tape, one name jumps to mind: Joe Reed. Great straight-line speed, strong hands, deceptive change of direction.
  • Early signing period matters the most in this kind of situation. If this senior season tape had been out there with Wicks on the market for another few months, bigger schools could have taken notice. But UVA got their guy, and now he’s signed.
