Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio signed seven prospects from Ohio in his
2012 recruiting class and has a commitment from another Buckeye State
star for 2013.

Dantonio is also going after a number of other Ohio juniors including Solon defensive back Darian Hicks.

The 5-foot-10 and 172-pound Hicks played quite a bit on the
varsity his sophomore season before starting every game during his
junior season as Solon finished 10-2. Hicks made 41 tackles and
intercepted three passes. He also started at wide receiver, but is being
recruited as a cornerback.

In the past few weeks Hicks has added three new scholarship offers.

“I have ten now,” Hicks said. “Akron, Iowa and Purdue are my most recent offers.”

Those three join Michigan State, Penn State, Illinois, Boston
College, Cincinnati, West Virginia and Louisville on Hicks’ offer list.

Hicks attended junior days at Michigan State and Ohio State. He has some spring visits in mind.

“I’m going to a spring practice at Michigan March 27 and a spring
practice at Ohio State on March 30,” Hicks said. “I might stop at
Michigan State when I visit Michigan.”

Even though Hicks is not sure he will stop in East Lansing, that doesn’t mean the Spartans are fading at all on his list.

“Michigan State is still on top,” Hicks said. “I talked to Pat Narduzzi last week. He wants me to come back up there.”

However, even though the Spartans have the lead, Hicks has no plans to commit any time soon.

“I want to pick a college after my senior season,” Hicks said.
