Hickcox redshirted during the 2017 season and started making appearances on the field as a redshirt freshman in 2018. He appeared in seven contests that season, making 2 tackles.
In 2019, Hickcox played in all 13 games for the Gophers, where he was credited with 2 more tackles on the year. He leaves Minnesota with 7 total tackles, 3 of which were solo stops. Thanks to the NCAA’s blanket waiver for all fall student-athletes this year, the DT will have two years of eligibility left at his next stop.
Minnesota finished the 2020 season with a 3-4 record.
