Liberty Bolsters 2016-17 Class with Signing of Hicks

Liberty Men's Basketball Head Coach Ritchie McKay has announced the signing of Brody Hicks to attend Liberty University for the 2016-17 academic year.

"Brody Hicks' decision to be a future Flame is a significant one for our program," McKay stated. "He brings so many things to the table that influence winning! His addition to this recruiting class adds to the potential for them to be remembered for a long time. I am very excited about Brody's skillset and toughness, but most of all, his character."

Hicks is a 6-3 guard who currently plays for head coach Jacob Gruse at Cave Spring High School in Roanoke, Va. In 2015, Hicks earned first team all-state, first team all-region, first team all-conference and was named the Conference 32 Player of the Year. He averaged 15.4 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists during his junior season. In addition to his high school accomplishments, Hicks played summer AAU basketball with Spectrum Sports Academy coached by Ron Clary.

Along with Hicks, Liberty's 2016-17 recruiting class includes Xzavier Barmore, Brock Gardner, Hayden Koval and Josiah Talbert.

"When we were at Liberty the first time, we had a class that ended up being highly acclaimed," McKay said. "And although that class achieved much, this is as excited as I have ever been about a recruiting class in their overall fit for our university, their playing ability and their character as a whole."
