J.F. Webb Coach Leo Brunelli stated, "Isaiah is an outstanding basketball player, but he is an even better person. He is the most unselfish (team player) I have ever had the pleasure to Coach in 20 years.
He will be a success in life due to his leadership and work ethic on and off the court."
Eric Bossi, Rivals.com National Basketball Analyst says, "It's no surprise to hear that Isaiah Hicks has been named NCPreps.com's player of the year. Hicks has proven himself time and again when playing against the best players from around the country and he had a super senior season that ended up netting him an invite to the McDonald's All-American game. The North Carolina bound power forward will of course need to add some strength for the next level but there is a lot to like about his game. He is a big time athlete with exceptional agility, he's quick to the rim and he has greatly improved during his high school career. Early on he was pretty reliant on his athleticism but he's developed his offensive repertoire, become a high level defender and is a force on the glass. I expect him to enjoy a fine career at North Carolina and be a guy that flourishes in Roy Williams' up and down system."
