Coach Hemi Showcase Player Evaluation:
Ishmael Hicks (Olive Branch, Miss.), Desoto Central HS – 2017 Hicks is quick, active guard who projects to be a play-maker from the point guard position. He uses his quickness very well to set up passes for his teammates as well as harassing the opposing ball handlers. While only standing at 5-6, he has exceptional leaping ability that allows him to play bigger than he is at times. If he can develop a consistent 3-point jumper, expect his productivity to increase as well.
