Hicks is a quick twitch CF with plus speed in the 60 at 6.70, posting a top 5 run times at the Preseason All-State and a previous PBR event. Built solid w/a lean athletic muscular build, Hicks has some tweaks to iron out in his hitting stroke with some raw mechanical movements that need to be smoothed out, but he is strong and posted a EV high of 95 with hand and bat speed data of 24.6 and 74.7. His hitting stroke reminds me of a football player that needs more time on the baseball field, his arm will relegate to LF, but with his projectable size, athleticism and run tool, he’s one to keep an eye on over the next three seasons.

Solidly built and well props throughout. Defensively he works through the ball, and gets into the proper position to throw, yet with a clean arm path, there needs to be better arm speed to carry the ball to and through the target. A well below avg arm that with some work, can gain a tick from 2 hop throws into a one hop over time. The bat has some rigidness and sweep through the zone. Not a fluid path at present, as he tends to use his upper body and his stroke is created with his shoulders and arms. Needs to get into his lower half more and allow the hands to work inside the baseball. There is hand and bat speed there with which a base has been created, just needs to smooth out the bat path and use his hands a bit more. With the right coach, some of these things can sort themselves out. The run tool will allow to play any OF spot at a 6.78 and he is twitchy in his actions straightaway and on the bases. Athleticism is a plus with this kid.
