Recruiting Week In Review - Irish Sports Daily

Quote:
2017 prospect Elijah Hicks, DB, 6-0, 185, La Mirada High School, La Mirada, CA had been waiting for a Notre Dame scholarship offer and last week the Irish came through.
“I called Todd Lyght, the DB coach,” Hicks said. “He was talking to me and said he wanted to offer me. He’s seen how hungry of a guy I am, I’m an athlete who can play both ways. He feels like I can contribute.”
Hicks is athletic enough to play on either side of the ball but he prefers defensive back to wide receiver.
“I could play anywhere in the secondary and I’ll bring my physical playmaking ability,” he said.
Hicks holds a number of scholarship offers ranging from the elite of the Pac 12 to Ivy League schools. He was very excited to add Notre Dame to that list. He was especially attracted to Notre Dame’s history of success, noting the Irish’s number three all-time ranking.
“I actually saw that in the morning and then later on, right before practice, they offered so it was kind of cool,” he shared.
While Notre Dame has yet to secure an official visit from the three-star defender, Hicks hopes to set one up for October.
“I have to talk it over with my family more, but I’d like to see how the environment is and talk with the coaches and see what they’re talking about more,” he shared.
Tyler Luatua, a former La Mirada star plays for the Irish and La Mirada head coach, Mike Moschetti, makes no secret of the fact that he’s a fan of Notre Dame. According to Hicks Moschetti describes the Irish as “big time,” an assessment with which he agrees. Still, he isn’t ready to name Notre Dame, or any other school as a leader at this point.
“I’m considering all of the schools really,” he said. “I’ll probably take my official visits to the farther schools so I can get a look at those.”
Hicks won’t likely make a decision until he takes his official visits, but does know what he will be looking for in a program.
“Probably my relationships with the coaching staff, the environment, academics and how all that comes together,” he said of his priorities in making a decision.

Scout: Hicks on upcoming visit to Notre Dame

Quote:
La Mirada (Calif.) defensive back Elijah Hicks visited Northwestern last weekend and he talks about his upcoming trip to Notre Dame.

La Mirada (Calif.) defensive back Elijah Hicks has been one of the best all-around football players in the Southland in the 2017 class.

And while his game has been taken to a new level, his recruitment has as well.

In the meantime, Hicks is getting more and more attention, well into the 30's in offers, with Michigan the latest to offer him.

In fact, it's been a Big Ten feeling for Hicks in the last week, with a visit to Northwestern taking place last weekend prior to the Wolverines offer.

"I had a good time at Northwestern," said Hicks. "It was a good trip and I'm glad I took a trip out there to see how it was. It came out to be an even better place than I expected it to be. They would definitely be around the top of my list."

It was the first official visit for Hicks and he was hosted by Brian Bullock on the trip.

There was also plenty of time with the Northwestern coaches.

"Coach (Jerry) Brown (Northwestern's DB coach) and Coach Fitz (head coach Pat Fitzgerald) are who I spent a lot of time with," said Hicks. "I really like Coach Fitz, he really connects with the players."

While the Wildcats lost to Nebraska when Hicks was there, he appreciated their outlook after.

"It was cool how the players act even though they lost," said Hicks.

"They don't bash their teammates, but they have a whole new respect for it. My host was telling me that they just have to make the best of their opportunities and win as a team."

Next month, Hicks will visit Notre Dame.

And even though the Irish fired defensive coordinator Brian Van Gorder this week, Hicks said that has zero effect on his recruitment.

"Coach Van Gorder getting fired doesn't affect me at all," said Hicks. "It's actually pretty cool to know that the coaches will do whatever they need to do to win and they have the best interest in the players so they made the move."

Defensive backs coach Todd Lyght is recruiting Hicks and he talks with head coach Brian Kelly often.

"Coach Lyght is the main one recruiting me but Coach Kelly texts me all the time," said Hicks.

It's the only other scheduled visit for Hicks, though he plans to take a few more.

"I have to talk it over with my parents about where else I'll visit," said Hicks. "Michigan is a very good possibility for a trip too."

The Wolverines had been on Hicks for a while, but the offer only recently came to fruition.

"We had every now and then talked, but then last week, we started to talk again and then they offered me on Monday," said Hicks. "It was really cool to get that offer."

The two local schools have been aggressively recruiting Hicks and he plans to visit for a few games at each school this season.

"UCLA and USC are both recruiting me hard and I talk with them all the time," said Hicks. "They'll both make my final list."

USC has had a host of coaches recruiting Hicks.

"Coach (Ronnie) Bradford is who is mainly recruiting me but I talk with Clancy (Pendergast) a lot and I talk to Coach (Clay) Helton a lot too," said Hicks. "I was at the Utah State game a couple weeks ago."

Across town, it's primarily defensive backs coach Demetrice Martin recruiting him.

"Coach Meat is the main one recruiting me to UCLA but I talk with Coach (Jim) Mora some too, but usually it's Coach Meat," said Hicks. "I'll didn't get to the Stanford game because I was on my trip to Northwestern but I plan to go."

Stanford is another school he's hoping joins the mix.

"They still talk to me but they've taken awhile to offer me so we'll see," said Hicks.

Hicks has a 3.7 GPA and will take the SAT in October.

This Friday, Hicks and La Mirada will take on Norwalk (Calif.).

Was just going to post this.

So Final 5 looks like:

ND
Northwestern
UCLA
SC/UM
Stanford jumps in/leads? with an offer

I think ND is in the lead but I think they are slow playing him right now. He's a tweener. Hasn't shown great speed in his testing but Gorney and the westcoast Rivals guys really like him. They have him as a solid 4 star.
