"Maryland is the leader right now and that's where I'm leaning towards," Tucker informed Scout.com. "I'm not sure yet (if I'll commit) but I'm sort of close."
Providing the competition for the Terps is Nebraska, Clemson, UTEP, Texas A&M and Washington State. Being on the list is one thing, getting a visit is another and thus far Tucker has only tripped to Maryland.
That begs the question: can the Terps be beat?
"Right now I'm not sure," Tucker said.
Until the commitment happens you never know but this one sure sounds like its swinging Maryland's way at the end of the day. "It's just my coaches and parents who have told me not to commit so soon. They just want me to wait a little more."
Tucker's an interesting recruit. Until recently the biggest choice he had to make was whether to pursue football or hoops in college. He's settled in and locked himself into a basketball decision because the game is his first love. "Basketball is much safer," Tucker quipped.
On the hardwood his calling card is his versatility. "(Colleges) say they'll basically use me around the perimeter as a combo guard, maybe even a three man."
