San Diego guard Enrico Tucker is looking at U

Enrico Tucker of San Diego (CA) University committed to nearby San Diego. However, he decided to re-open his recruitment and has received scholarship offers from schools in the Big Ten and ACC and has gotten interest from schools in the Big 12, SEC, Big East and Pac-10.

Rico Tucker admitted that he might have committed too early to the nearby Toreros.

"I just want to weigh all my options. It was nothing personal and nothing against the program," he said.

Tucker said that Minnesota, Gonzaga, North Carolina State, San Diego and San Francisco have offered him a scholarship. He added that Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Boston College, Missouri and Arizona State are also recruiting him.

Tucker has made only one unofficial visit to Arizona State a week before the Nike All-American Camp.

He said that 6-9 Spencer Tollackson of Chaska (MN) High did a good job of recruiting him for the Gophers at the Nike Camp. Tollackson had received a list of players that the Gophers were recruiting from head coach Dan Monson and told Tucker all the positives of the program.

Tucker said that he likes Minnesota and how they play. He stated that he wants to play at a big school and knows that Minnesota is one of the biggest universities in the country.

Tucker said that he is uncertain whether he will sign in the early signing period, due to possible coaching changes that could develop.

"I have not looked at my recruiting hard yet."

His high school team will return four starters on a senior-dominated team. They finished 16-16 last season, after being eliminated in the second round of the playoffs on a shot at the buzzer.

Tucker said that he is willing to go away for school. He lived in Cleveland, Ohio until he moved to San Diego when he was 8 years old.
