Hicklen came to UAB as a two-sport athlete before the football program was cut at UAB. Now that football has been restored for fall 2017, he's a two-sport guy again as a wide receiver and center fielder. He's strong and fast at a listed 6-foot-2, 208 pounds, with 70-grade speed that helps make him a legitimate future plus defender. He has an average arm and above-average raw power. He got more aggressive at the plate this year, resulting in more strikeouts but also a jump from three to eight home runs. Hicklen's feel for hitting is raw as he needs more reps due to the development time he has missed due to football. He's a charismatic leader and excellent teammate who plays with intensity. Hicklen would have to be bought out of football, which may be the best argument UAB has to keep him.
