Sorry, no way. I agree they are hurting at QB but they have 3 they would be in front of him. Arkansas QB problem is the OL.

That was also not in the SEC and he won’t have a Courtland Sutton or Trey Quinn. I see Hicks on the same level as Storey, I’d rather take a shot on someone like Buechele. But at least he would know the offense better than any of the others.

This reminds me a little bit of the McCown conversation a few years back. Wouldn’t at all be surprised to see Hicks in the NFL. Not defending him, just sayin

You and I see and hear a lot of the same stuff. But I cannot agree that Hicks is equal to Story. I think Ty has much better mobility and better accuracy. He has to spend half of his time running from All American DLs.

But I go back to the fact that Morris needs a lot of people in a lot of positions. Right now he has capable QBs and a good one coming in. I do not see him using a scholarship on Hicks. If Hicks wants to walk on that might be an option.

Everyone assumes that Hicks is all fired up to transfer to another program and play football. I think there is more of a chance that he takes his graduate degree and looks for a good job walking away from all the pressure and criticism that has followed him the past 4 years.

Local sports programs here are touting Hicks big time. Saying not quite the status of the Clemson kid but still a big time get. Smh.

Ben Hicks has ZERO chance of playing a down of NFL football.
Back off Warchild seriously.

Bartel had infinitely more talent that PickSixHicks.

BigTimeBen! I think the clueless Arky sports programs and fans deserve an up close look at a Hicks start in the SEC...... :lol:

They'll really appreciate his body language after an early sack and a pick six!

I bet Ben is going to Ark and will sign in the early period.,


Yeah - if he actually was going there; he would have been taken last year by Morris. If I had to guess, he's going D-2.

Bartel was an elite athlete with work ethic problems. Not the same situation.

Because there is no pressure or criticism in the business/real world - not.
