While meeting with coaches in his home this week, Darquavis Tucker prepares for a trip to DePaul this weekend. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard from Arthur Hill High School in Saginaw, Mich., will then take a visit to a Big East school that he has recently added to his list.
"It is still the same four schools, but I've added Cincinnati," said Tucker. "Coach Cronin is really cool. I'm going to visit them the weekend after next."
So Tucker now has Illinois, Indiana, Cincinnati, DePaul and Miami on his list. He just visited Miami and coaches from the other four schools will be in his home this week.
"My visit to Miami went well," he said. "I played with the team and got to hang out with all the players. We went around South Beach and that was crazy. The trip made a good impression on me."
As much as Tucker likes Coach Cronin and as good a trip as he had to Miami, everyone is still playing catch up to Illinois and Indiana.
"Illinois and Indiana are still on top of my list," asserted Tucker.
Tucker is the No. 22 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
Darquavis Tucker scouting report:
A very athletic wing player, Tucker excels at using either hand to finish in the lane. Runs the floor and rebounds extremely well. As he is making the transition from an interior player to a perimeter player, the left handed Tucker has made great strides in his outside shooting and passing. His ball handling is the area that still needs the most work.
