Hicks fails to qualify

Athlete Antoine Hicks of Mansfield Timberview won't be enrolling at Texas this fall. He came up short on his qualifying ACT score.

Although he played quarterback in high school, he was going to play wide receiver at Texas. His commitment was a bit of a head scratcher because he wasn't really recruited by anyone else and had only sparingly played receiver before.

The opportunity cost on this was high. The top receiver in Texas last year was Darryl Stonum of Fort Bend Dulles. He had offers from all the big boys, and his dad wanted him to hold out for a offer from Texas. Because of track he never was able to make it to the Texas campus to meet the coaches during the spring, and the Texas coaches hardly even contacted him.

He was a mid term enrollee at Michigan.
