That year, Ricks finished second in the Big Ten and ninth in the country in rushing with 1,388 yards - the fifth best single-season total in Michigan history. For his career, he rushed for 2,751 yards. He was named All-Big Ten in '82 and also was an honorable mention a All-American selection. The Barberton native also played in two Rose Bowls with the Wolverines. After college, Ricks played two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.
