Hicks to transfer to Florida Gulf Coast

Georgia Tech center Nate Hicks will transfer to Florida Gulf Coast University. After sitting out the 2012-13 season, Hicks will have two years of eligibility remaining.

In two seasons, Hicks averaged 8.6 minutes, 1.4 points and 2.1 rebounds in 47 games. With the signing of power forward Robert Carter, Hicks’ role seemed likely to decrease. Hicks’ finalists were Penn, Colgate, Stetson and Florida Gulf Coast, a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference. A member of the academic All-ACC team this past season, Hicks said his relationship with coach Andy Enfield, who recruited Hicks out of Panama City Beach in high school for Florida State, was a considerable factor in his decision.

“It just seemed to me like a place I could succeed,” Hicks said.

Hate to see him giving up his chance at a degree from Tech. Hope he comes back and gets it later.

Although a limited player and not up to ACC level, Hicks always seemed a hard worker with a good attitude – I hope he does well at Florida Gulf Coast U.

It would’ve been nice to have Hicks as injury insurance, but yeah, he probably wasn’t going to get much playing time next season. I hope he succeeds at FGCU.

UOAD, I just posted this on the softball blog, but since you’re here, I will repeat it here. I checked that softball tournament link you posted, and unless I am reading it wrong (which IS possible), it looks to me like the softball tournament IS a 64 team field.
