Tucker has interest from KANSAS https://twitter.com/matthewbain_/status/1148300464087281666?s=21

Probably very minor and preliminary, but hey, wow.

Looks like Tucker got to make the trip to Costa Rica.

Yeah I know, his father is the head coach of our program but there is going to be a TON of competition for him. No matter what Drake will be the odds on favorite to land him but it is already a precarious situation with the Creighton offer and who the hell knows what will happen once more big boys offer.

Article written by Corey Evans at Rivals about some observations he had at the Adidas Summer Finals. His tenth point talks about coaches’ sons who played well and Tucker is mentioned in it. Very cool getting a national shoutout and it’s clear he is starting to get some notice across the country.

Your turn

Offered by Creighton
By Dawg_tired - 11/2/2019

Wouldn't he want to play for his father?
By Knappdog17 - 11/2/2019

“DeVries, meanwhile, has picked up offers from South Dakota State, Drake and Air Force this week after a strong performance at the showcase in Missouri. He is also hearing from Iowa, Nebraska-Omaha and Kansas.

Yes, Kansas as in the Kansas Jayhawks.

Assistant coach Norm Roberts called him this week.

"He was basically just saying how, at my size and ability to shoot the ball, I could play anywhere," DeVries told me, "and (he) thought in a few years, there's a good chance I would be able to help them."
By ILLINOISBULLDOG - 11/2/2019

Very interesting scenario.  If he goes elsewhere it seems like kind of a bad look at least imo 
By Knappdog17 - 1/2/2020

Looks like Tucker went on an unofficial visit to Creighton last night for the Marquette game. 
By DUBulldog - 6/23/2019

Offered by Drake today.  link

I heard a rumor that Drake's head coach has a thing for this kid's mom :hehe:
By Veeny009 - 11/2/2019

I would not be even a little surprised if he went to Creighton over Drake. 

Some kids don't want to play for their fathers, but more importantly, his dad coached at Creighton for like 80% of his life, he likely has a stronger connection with them than Drake

I think it would be unusual if he didn't want to play for his Dad. I suspect DD has told Tucker to keep his options open and to make his own decision. If Drake's basketball fortunes were to sharply deteriorate over the next 2 years, I guess Tucker might consider Creighton, Iowa, or Kansas a step up. I am optimistic that Drake will continue to do well on the court and that Tucker will be a Bulldog.
By zman - 11/6/2019

Veeny you wouldn't be even a little surprised if he went top Creighton over where his dad is currently coaching? Really? I get that he spent a long time at Creighton but he's now the head coach of what looks like a program on the rise.  If he's good enough when the time comes I would be extremely surprised if he picked Creighton over Drake. 
By Lime - 11/6/2019

I would hope he picks Drake, but we're talking about the Big East vs. the Missouri Valley. I think Drake is on the rise under DD, but the reality is that Creighton is playing Villanova, Marquette, Georgetown, and (soon) UConn on Fox while Drake is playing Southern Illinois, Northern Iowa, Evansville, and Valparaiso on ESPN+. 
By mnbulldog - 11/6/2019

Hopefully Drake will keep the recent trend upward going and are winning those games. I’m unsure of the Blue Jay status as they have been up and down since Doug graduated.

I would not be surprised at all if he picked Creighton over Drake. 15 years of his life all he knew was Creighton basketball, Creighton's currently a better program, with a bigger arena, in a better conference. Not everyone wants to play for their father.
