NEW YORK – Jordan Tucker has been hearing from UConn, Syracuse, Arizona and Maryland, and Michigan plans to start recruiting him.
He also picked up a Seton Hall offer on Saturday, when head coach Kevin Willard and his entire staff watched Tucker play.
Tucker, a 6-foot-7 wing who is rated 23rd in ESPN’s Super 25 for the class of 2017, went for 25 points and 14 rebounds Saturday as Archbishop Stepinac beat Thurgood Marshall, 70-65, at the Big Apple Basketball Invitational at Baruch College.
“I was just in my flow today,” Tucker said.
As far as schools, Tucker said, “Michigan’s been recruiting me. They want to start recruiting me in the spring when the EYBL starts.”
Tucker’s grandfather attended law school at Michigan.
“They have a huge tradition,” Tucker said of Michigan. “I would love to play for that school, any high-major D-1 school. But whatever falls into place, happens.”
He also hears consistently from UConn and Syracuse, among others.
“A lot from UConn and Syracuse, they’ve been in touch with me,” he said. Everything’s been kind of quiet lately.
“I’m just focusing on school right now.”
