Markese Tucker, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound forward from Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton, New Jersey, continues to have a solid summer, competing in AAU events for head coach Matt Pauls and Team NJABC.

Tucker is supposed to be with Team NJABC this week at the Wide World of Sports complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida on the grounds of Disney World for the Super Showcase.

Team NJABC previously claimed the Joe Brown Memorial tournament in Englewood, New Jersey. "Markese is making improvements in his game in every event he plays," Pauls said.

Due to his terrific play thus far this spring and summer, Markese has generated some solid division one interest in his skill level. The schools that Pauls told us that have been involved include Fairfield, St. Francis (NY), Mount Saint Mary's, Robert Morris, Quinnipiac, Iona, Rider, Canisius, and St. Francis (PA).

"He's open in his recruiting process," said Pauls.
