Cedar Hill High School in Texas is home to a couple of very impressive prospects. Jarvis Humphrey and Corwin Hicks plan on making life miserable for opposing offenses in the upcoming season. Humphrey is a strong defensive tackle and Hicks uses his speed to patrol the middle of the field at linebacker. Head Coach Joey McGuire spoke highly about both of these talented kids.
“Jarvis has great explosion and good feet for his size,” McGuire said. “We scrimmaged last week and he hit the offensive lineman so hard that it flipped him backwards into the running back. He is extremely explosive and strong.”
The 6-foot-2, 300 pound Humphrey should begin to draw a ton of attention from Division I programs over the next couple of months. He has the potential to be a special player on the next level.
The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Hicks runs the 40-yard dash in a speedy 4.49 seconds. He has the talent to play both on both sides of the ball. He excelled last season from the running back position but is used more at linebacker. He is a vital part of the Cedar Hill defense and should also start hearing from college coaching staffs in the near future.
“He rotates at stack backer and tail back, but he plays a lot more defense,” McGuire said. “He runs the football very well. He is good playing man and zone on defense because he is so fast. He is a very good player for us.”
Humphrey and Hicks both played as sophomores. Their experience should play a big role in the success at Cedar Hill this season.
