Houston Announces QB Ben Hicks to 2015 Signing Class
Aug. 18, 2014
HOUSTON - University of Houston head football coach Tony Levine announced Monday that high school senior-to-be quarterback Ben Hicks has signed a financial-aid agreement and will enroll at the University of Houston in January. The product of Midway High School in Waco, Texas, was recently ranked the No. 2 quarterback at the prestigious Elite 11 Camp in Beaverton, Ore., on July 12.
In his junior season as Midway’s starting quarterback, Hicks threw for 3,741 yards and 36 touchdowns with a 68 percent completion rate (235-348) to lead the program to a 9-3 record. Hicks also added 168 yards and three touchdowns on the ground for the Panthers.
The NCAA clarified a rule last year that allows a prospective student-athlete with plans to enroll at the middle of an academic year to sign financial-aid agreements with schools beginning on Aug. 1. With the rule, once a prospect signs a financial-aid agreement, the school can publicly mention the student-athlete and is no longer limited to contact restrictions with the student-athlete.
