Running back Gerard Wicks of Long Beach Poly picked up two scholarship offers Wednesday, from Nevada and Colorado State. He has also holds an offer from Washington State.
Wicks and fellow senior-to-be Manusamoa Luuga form a powerful backfield tandem for the Jackrabbits. Wicks rushed for 11 touchdowns last season and averaged nearly eight yards per carry; Luuga had 10 scores and more than six yards per carry.
And although Wicks shares the ball, he figures to be one of the area's most productive seniors this fall.
