At one point Darquavis Tucker was on the verge of committing to Louisville over Miami, but he held out too long and the Cardinals took a commitment from George Goode. Now Tucker, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound wing from Arthur Hill High School in Saginaw, Mich., is looking at four schools and the two he has already visited have a slight edge over the other two.
"Louisville is off the list because they got a commitment," said Tucker. "I wanted to wait until I visited Miami, but they went ahead and took the commitment."
Tucker, the No. 22 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, will travel south for his Miami visit September 9 and then follow up that visit with a trip to DePaul on September 16.
The two schools that are at the top of his list, however, are Indiana and Illinois. He has already unofficially visited both schools, most recently Illinois.
"The Illinois visit went really well," he said. "I've been considering them for a while. Illinois and Indiana standout right now for me. I really like Coach Weber and Coach Sampson and their styles of play."
Tucker, who started his high school career as an interior player, has made huge strides improving his perimeter skills over the past year. With his athleticism, competitive mindset and rapid skill development, Tucker has quite a high ceiling he is working towards.
"My game is really coming up," he said. "My shooting is much better from the work I have put into it. Now I am focused on developing my ball handling."
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.
