In less than 24 hours, the Oklahoma Sooners will find out where they stand with five-star defensive lineman David Hicks.
Hicks, one of the last high-profile five-star prospects still on the board, will commit on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 3:30 p.m. CT on ESPN. Hicks would join an Oklahoma Sooners recruiting class that already includes five-star prospects, quarterback Jackson Arnold and edge rusher Adepoju Adebawore.
The Sooners have been trending in a positive direction with David Hicks for some time but still have to stave off last-second recruitment pitches from Texas A&M, Michigan State, and Alabama.
Looking to make a final push, several recruits, including Arnold and 2023 center commit Joshua Bates took to social media, along with many in Sooner Nation, to make their pitch using #HicksToNorman on Twitter.
Here are some of the best usages of the hashtag from Twitter on the eve of his commitment.

Blue Chip DL
If Oklahoma can land David Hicks, they'll have two 4-star and two 5-star DL as part of their 2023 Recruiting Class. #HicksToNorman
