2003 Update: Anthony "PJ" Tucker

Anthony "PJ" Tucker was recently named player of the year in his conference and for good reason. The 6-5 Tucker put up some big-time numbers as a junior and schools are taking notice of his talents.

24 Points and 13 Rebounds As A Junior

Anthony Tucker busted his tail with the NC Red Storm last summer. He was the team's most productive player and no one hustled the way he did. The 6-5 member of the Class of 2003 built on his performance at the AAU Nationals and rode the energy all season long.

He averaged 23 points and 13 rebounds for Tommy Moore's Raleigh Enloe team. Moore said his star put up six games with 20 or more rebounds last season. "We never had guys that get 20 rebounds in a game. Chris (Wilcox) had 18 his first game here. PJ did it twice as a sophomore."

Wake Forest and Clemson from the ACC are recruiting him. In-state East Carolina and UNC-Wilmington have their lines in the water as well.

"PJ has some work to do in the classroom, but I think he can do it," Moore said. Tucker will again travel with the NC Red Storm this summer. He'll also attend the Nike All-American Camp in Indianapolis.
