Although Maryland is still his favorite school, four-star prospect Cliff Tucker is not quite ready to pull the trigger. Tucker, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound perimeter player from El Paso (Texas) Chapin High School is also considering his hometown school.
"It is still the same with Maryland as my leader," Tucker told Rivals.com. "But I'm not ready to make a decision yet. I'm also looking at UTEP."
Tucker, who ended his high school season averaging 22 points, 10 rebounds and four assists per game, visited Maryland in the fall. He does not have a time table for reaching a decision as the spring signing period approaches.
A versatile player who can play all three perimeter positions, Tucker is in the mold of the Terrapin's senior guard D.J. Strawberry.
Cliff Tucker scouting report:
A smooth athlete who is skilled with the ball, Tucker plays as much like a point guard as a wing forward. He has a good feel for the game, but he does need to improve his strength and long range shooting for the next level.
