Markese Tucker, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound forward from Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton, New Jersey, is a prospect to watch over the next several months. He's currently competing with NJABC head coach Matt Pauls on the AAU circuit.

Team NJABC recently captured the Joe Brown Memorial tournament in Englewood, New Jersey. "Markese has made some contributions," Pauls said.

To win any AAU tournament during the month of July is impressive and it's usually a team effort that helps produce the victories.

Because of Tucker's solid summer, schools like Fairfield, St. Francis (NY), Mount Saint Mary's, Robert Morris, Quinnipiac, etc., have been involved in his recruiting process.

Tucker previously had taken a campus visit to Robert Morris University. Iona, Rider, Canisius, and St. Francis (PA) had previously expressed interest, according to Pauls.
