2019 KS ATH Amauri Pesek-Hickson, now a composite three-star after being unranked just two weeks ago, played football his freshman season, then focused exclusively on basketball his sophomore and junior years. A return to football as a senior saw him pick up a Michigan offer earlier this month after they saw an athlete they liked on film; he immediately set an official visit for December 8th. With the news this week that he would be on campus today for an unofficial, this was more a matter of when, not if.
247's Allen Trieu watched Pesek-Hickson's basketball and football tape and saw a player with positional versatility.
Whenever kids come over from another sport, you wonder about physicality, but he runs with strength and physicality on offense and shows a willingness to put his face on ball-carriers.
Size, check. Athleticism, check. Physicality, check.
Trieu says that he's likely going to be a Viper, though he might get a look at running back; he played both safety and running back in high school. Full Hello post forthcoming.
