Jordan Tucker Plans Officials to Indiana, Villanova
Jordan Tucker, the 6-foot-7 wing from Marietta (GA) Wheeler, has planned two official visits for the coming weeks, his father told ZAGSBLOG.
Tucker will trip to Indiana on Nov. 30 for the North Carolina game and to Villanova on Dec. 13 for the Temple game, Lou Tucker said.
Indiana coach Tom Crean and assistant Chuck Martin were both in attendance for Wheeler’s home opener on Friday. Tucker went for 20 points and 7 rebounds in a 68-60 win over M.J. Walker and Jonesboro (GA).
Jordan, who transferred from White Plains (N.Y.) Archbishop Stepinac this summer, cut his list to Duke, Maryland, Syracuse, UConn, Indiana, Villanova, USC and Louisville, and will sign in the spring.
