Hayworth Hicks says he has received offers from Oregon, Utah, Michigan State, Mississippi and a few others, but admits that none of them are still recruiting him.

"I haven't really talked with any of them in a while," Hicks said, ranked as the No. 28 offensive guard by "The most recent school to recruit me was Michigan State and I was supposed to visit them this weekend (Jan. 19), but they said that another guy already committed and I couldn't go."

Hicks favors Oregon solid over Arizona and Utah and hopes the Ducks show him some attention again. "I'd commit there if I had an offer," Hicks said. "I love Oregon. They have a great reputation and they have the best fan support in the Pac-10. I don't really know what's going on with them, but I think it's probably something about my grades."

Hicks says he has a 2.6 core GPA and a 900 SAT (new version), which he is retaking on Jan. 26.
