Position: Offensive Tackle

Year: Junior

Height: 6'6''

Weight: 282 pounds

Hometown: Murrysville, PA

High School: Franklin Regional HS

2010 Stats: Sean missed all of last season with a torn ACL, or as we know it now, a "lower body injury."

2011 Projections: So tough to say because Hickey's career has been as injury-plagued as one can be. He's coming off a torn ACL last year and has missed all of spring practice was a knee issue that may or may not be related. He's at the bottom of the depth chart because of it and he can't have been able to get too much done due to the problems. He's also got a senior and another junior on the depth chart ahead of him. Fingers crossed for Hicks.

What'd Scouts/Rivals Say?: Scout.com had Hickey as a two-star kid. So did Rivals.

How'd He Get Here?: Hickey had interest from a whole bunch of schools, including Akron, but offers came courtesy of SU, BC, Illinois, EMU, Marshall and Ohio. The decision came down to Illinois, Boston College and us for his services as a tackle. Illinois apparently thought they had him locked up at one point but he ended up choosing Syracuse due to the coaching staff.

Money Quote: "I love the coaches there (Syracuse's coaches). The program's headed in the right direction and is also a place I can play early. I like what they're about."

Links of Wonder: Here's the story on Hickey's injury last year. Not sure why you want to read that, but, there you go.

What Does Doug Marrone Think?: This is how you know Doug loves him some Hickey--he has something to say about him, and he was a freshman. Check this out from syracuse.com:

He moves very well," Marrone said. "He’s very athletic for that position. What’s going to be the key for him is how well he progresses from a weightlifting standpoint in the off-season, getting bigger and stronger, because that’s what you need to really succeed. You have to have a certain amount of strength to play that position."

Interesting Nugget O' Interest: Sean set his high school's record for pancake blocks. Bet you didn't even know they kept track of that.

Let Us Get AGood Look Atchya: Not much footage from Syracuse but here's a recruiting video from his high school days...
