Five-star defensive lineman David Hicks, the ninth best overall recruit in the nation in the Class of 2023, committed to Texas AM over Oklahoma on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-4 Texan said staying close to home was part of his motivation to choose the Aggies.

"They have a really great coaching staff and I have a really great relationship with everyone on staff," Hicks told ESPN. "They've been recruiting me since eighth grade and I can stay close to home."

Hicks is also the No. 1 defensive lineman and top prospect out of Texas, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.

Hicks chose AM over Oregon, Michigan State and Miami among his 39 offers, in addition to the Sooners.

Hicks plays for Paetow High School in Katy, Texas.
