2007 Introduction: Alex Tucker

Alex Tucker, an athletic junior point guard from Southern California, is hearing from programs in the WCC, Mountain West and Big West...

Alex Tucker, 5-11 JR PG Redondo Beach (Calif.) Redondo Union, is a very good athlete with a nice upside. He's got a decent shot to 18-20 feet and he competes well.

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

"Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine, Pacific, Utah, San Diego, San Diego State, Cornell, San Francisco...those are some," said Tucker.

We asked Tucker what he is looking for in a school.

"The coaches and the environment are the main thing," said Tucker. "I kind of like the West Coast. Playing time is kind of a factor, but it's not a big thing."

Tucker said he's been on a couple unofficial visits to Pepperdine and a few programs have been out to see him.

"San Diego came out to a practice," said Tucker. "Pepperdine came to some games."

Tucker said he doesn't have a favorite at this time.

"They're all about equal," said Tucker. "I'm going to wait until the fall to decide."

Tucker told us he has a 2.7 GPA.
