St. Raymond senior guard Myron Hickman will try to walk on at Delaware State in pursuit of his Division 1 dream. He made his decision two weeks ago after being accepted for admission to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference school.

"Basically, I felt like it was the right move," Hickman said. "I feel like I have a good chance to compete for a spot on the team."

Hickman had been hoping to secure a Division I scholarship, even playing on the AAU circuit this spring, but that offer never came. He had interest from Clarion and some other Division II schools, but ultimately decided to try and fight his way onto a Division I roster. He said he's not concerned that walking on means he's not guaranteed a spot.

"I'm an NYC baller. I have confidence through the roof," Hickman said. "I'm going to go and take care of business and play the way I'm capable. Everything will fall into place."

Hickman was a key role player for St. Raymond's CHSAA Class AA Intersectional title team. He missed a month of the season with a bacterial infection, which be believes hurt him in terms of recruiting. He hit a buzzer-beat in a win over Boys & Girls in February.

"I'm definitely looking forward to it," Hickman said. "This is what you strive for, to play against the best competition and I fee like why not continue to go for it and make a good situation."
