Elijah Hicks, a defensive back at La Mirada High School in California, has committed to join Notre Dame's 2017 recruiting class. He also reportedly held scholarship offers from Southern California, Michigan and UCLA, among others.

Rated a four-star prospect by some scouting services and a three-star recruit by others, the 6-foot, 185-pound Hicks has been credited with 22 tackles, two interceptions and even a blocked field goal this fall. His career varsity totals include four interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
