2012 Into: Dakarai Tucker

Dakarai Tucker, a 6-3 senior shooting guard from Southern California, gives us an update on his recruitment...

Dakarai Tucker, 6-3 SR SG Gardena (Calif.) Serra, is an intriguing prospect with a nice upside. Tucker has good length and athleticism, with a very playable shot out to the stripe.

I spoke with Tucker recently and he gave me a list of schools that have been in contact with him.

"Colorado, Nevada, Loyola Marymount, Santa Clara, UC Riverside, Bakersfield, San Francisco and UC Davis have been the main ones," said Tucker.

I asked Tucker if any schools stand out for him at this time.

"I really like Santa Clara, LMU and Colorado," said Tucker. "Those three have been recruiting me the hardest."

Tucker said he went to LMU and Santa Clara's camps.

When asked what he is looking for in a school, Tucker replied, "Good academics, good facilities, someplace that's not too hot or too cold."

Tucker said he currently has a 3.0 GPA.
