COVINGTON, Ga. — Just a little more than a week after declaring his commitment was still sure, Alcovy baseball standout Chandler Hicks has de-committed from Alabama State University, as stated in a post made on both his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
“I would like to thank the coaching staff at ASU for giving me the opportunity to play for their program,” Hicks wrote. “Although, I will be de-committing from the program and will open up my recruitment.”

Hicks had been committed to Alabama State since October 1, 2017 and had noted how much he liked the atmosphere and the coaching staff there in a March interview with The Covington News.
Being only a rising junior, Hicks will have plenty of time to rack up more offers from other schools, particularly as his recruiting — and even MLB Draft stock — continues to rise as more scouts become aware of his talents.
Last Tuesday Hicks had a solid showing at the Georgia Underclass Top 100 Showcase where he performed in front of dozens of college and pro scouts. The 6-foot-2, 180 pounder has already been considered one of the top catchers in the state, and is ranked in the top 100 in the nation for his position.
