Ronnie Hickman's high school career is over as the four-star Ohio State safety commit will miss the remainder of his senior season after tearing his ACL last week, according to a report from NJ.com.

From Andrew Koob of NJ.com:

Hickman, who was presented with his All-American Game jersey before DePaul's game against Don Bosco Friday, was sporting a large brace on his right knee throughout the day and was in street clothes in the Spartans' 59-28 loss. McKenna also confirmed that Hickman will not participate in the All-American game.

Offensively this season, Hickman totaled 609 receiving yards and nine touchdowns on 26 catches while also rushing for 23 yards and a score, which were all totaled in the St. Peter's game. Defensively he recorded 19 tackles, one for a loss, while breaking up five passes and forcing a fumble. He's also returned a punt for a touchdown, doing so against Seton Hall Prep in DePaul's second game of the season.

He finishes his scholastic career with 1,418 receiving yards and 22 total touchdowns (19 receiving) on 70 catches over the course of two seasons on offense. Defensively Hickman totaled 71 tackles, two interceptions and 15 pass breakups in 19 games in three seasons as a defensive back.

Hickman committed to Ohio State back in April, and said he's always had dreams of becoming a Buckeye.

“It means everything. It's just a dream come true," Hickman told Eleven Warriors when he received an Ohio State offer. “[I’ve been a fan] ever since I could walk."

Hickman is one of three Buckeye safety commits in the 2019 class, along with four-star top-100 player Jordan Battle and three-star Bryson Shaw.
