ISAIAH HICKS

BIRTHDATE: 7/24/94

POSITION: Power Forward

HEIGHT: 6'8"

WEIGHT: 240 lbs

SCHOOL/ TEAM: North Carolina

CLASS: Senior

Isaiah Hicks looks like an energy guy and is a good athlete. He's pretty fluid and did a good job defensively against Tatum in the ACC tournament, so there's some defensive upside. He runs the floor well. 

 

Either he doesn't have the confidence or the coaches didn't but he's not shooting any jumpers. He's another guy that wants to play with his back to the basket but he doesn't show any advanced post moves, just bully ball and duck ins. I wonder if he'll be able to play the 4 offensively. 

 

POSITIVES:

 

Good athlete 

Can put the ball on the floor some. 

Runs the floor

Fluid 

Energy guy

Did a good job moving his feet against Tatum in the acc tournament 

Good shot blocker on the ball and coming from help

 

AREAS OF CONCERN:

Not confident past 10 ft

Can he face up

Slow release 

Can he play the 4

No advanced moves on the block

Doesn't close out fast enough
