I noticed in the Ames Trib story that some years ago, Hayworth Hicks' dad had decided to move his family to Palmdale (CA). I know that Craig Brackins spent his last two school years in Chicago and New Hampshire, but Palmdale is still his hometown, and the two are the same class. Does anyone know if the two athletes knew one another in California, and that played a role in Hayworth's recruitment?

Just curious at the apparent coincidence.
