DE Tony Tucker Profile

4-star defensive end Tony Tucker would like to be in Clemson this weekend to take in the Tigers' game against Georgia Tech, but the long trip may keep him away.

"I really want to get down to see Georgia Tech and Clemson on Saturday," Tucker told CUTigers.com Sunday afternoon. "Me and my dad are talking about it, but the drive is like nine hours. I don't know if we will be able to make it."

Even if Tucker is unable to make the trip Saturday, the star defender also said he still plans to take four official visits - including one to Clemson.

"I have an official visit scheduled for Pittsburgh on December 3. I am going to Georgia Tech on December 8. I am talking about going to Clemson in January and Virginia Tech will be November 25," he said.

When asked if he has a leader, Tucker responded, "No, they are all pretty much even."

If signing day were today the 4-star defensive end would be playing in the ACC.

"If I had to decide today it would be Georgia Tech," he said.

How will Tucker decide between the four leaders?

"When I get down there for the visits I want to see how the teams get along. I want to see the coaches. I want to see what kind of support system each school has. I will look at the player coach relationship. Academics is always something I will look at. I will also look at the atmosphere of the whole university," replied Tucker.

Although Tucker plans four official visits, a commitment could come before he has completed his visits.

"I'm not sure when I will make my decision. I could make decision while on one of my visits."

Tucker also commented on his play so far during his senior season.

"We played pretty good this week," he added. "We had a slow start but picked it up in the second half. We got the W. I had three catches for 43 yards. I also had a whole lot of tackles in the backfield."
