Antoine Hicks Can't Qualify

Antoine Hicks, the Mansfield-Timberview recruit in the Longhorns 2009 recruiting class failed to qualify to play for Texas, according to Scout ($).  Hicks played some quarterback in high school, but I'm pretty sure he was offered as an athlete, though Scout lists him at receiver.  He only ran a 4.69 in high school, so he doesn't exactly have blazing speed or anything close to the speed to play receiver.  As a three-star prospect (per Scout), I don't think this is a big loss for the Horns.  He's only six feet tall and without any speed, it's hard to imagine what position he would have played for Texas.  Considering the upcoming scholarship crunch and need for attrition (particularly if any of Winston, Kirkpatrick, Kennard, or Kelly commit), I think overall this isn't anything to be concerned about.
