Clearwater Central Catholic gains a quarterback

Countryside High School quarterback Rory Hicks (11) tries to break a tackle against St. Petersburg High School defenders in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Oct. 21, 2016.

Countryside High School quarterback Rory Hicks (11) tries to break a tackle against St. Petersburg High School defenders in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Oct. 21, 2016.

Countryside quarterback Rory Hicks has transferred to Clearwater Central Catholic.

The move became official Tuesday.

Last season, Hicks threw for 424 yards and two touchdowns as a sophomore. He broke his tibia and fibula against East Lake and is rehabilitating. Hicks said he will be fully recovered once spring practice begins but will be ineligible to play in the spring game because he transferred after the start of the second semester.

The switch in schools was made because Hicks said he attended private schools through eighth grade and has plenty of friends that attend CCC. The family also is in the process of moving to Treasure Island or the northeast area of St. Petersburg.

Hicks is the latest in a slew of transfers for the Marauders, who have had a busy offseason. Last month, receivers Amari Burney and Deandre Ferguson both transferred to Calvary Christian. Days later, five players from Palm Harbor University — receivers J'Von France and TJ Colmery, linebacker Matt Tauber and lineman Evan Kulyk and Brendan Thomas — transferred to CCC.
