finally some news reports on Mike Tucker

He scored 19 in Saturday's 66-44 win over Durham Hillside (another BU recruit Harold Givens had 12)

Tucker's school - QEA - has also come under fire for violations....although not athletic..

Geno Ford is going to visit & watch Mike Tucker in tonight's game

QEA plays the Wesleyan Christian Academy Trojans from High Point, NC who are currently undefeated at 6-0
..they have several D-I players...senior Trey Chapman is headed to VMI
but Class of 2014 PG JaQuel Richmond (4-Stars and getting high major offers) is still undecided..
They also have 6-5 SF Theo Pinson (2014 & 5-STARS - getting plenty of early offers including Duke, UNC..) and 6-8 big man Harry Giles (2016 - also getting early attention/offers from Duke & UNC)

QEA staged a frantic 4th quarter rally after being down by 15 points. They still end up losing to powerhouse WCA 70-63. WCA is likely the best team in the state of NC and one of the best in the country. Mike Tucker lead QEA with 27 points.

14-year old Giles dominated this game with a few highlight reel dunks. He's probably going to be a top 10 player nationally by the time he's a senior.

14, dominated with highlight dunks and you say top 10. Are you undervaluing the kid. At 14 most of us were lucky to dribble and hit a layup during games against JV competition.

here's more highlights...lots of dunks..
http://www.wxii12.com/news/high-scho...r/-/index.html

#1 is the FRESHMAN Harry Giles - how'd you like to have him signed to go to Bradley!
Michael Tucker is #24 on the team in white - gotta box out better!

BTW -- the kid who is #22 in white on Tucker's team is also a freshman -- I hope Geno keeps an eye on him and stays in contact!

Those prep school games always feature lots of dunks and baaaad defense. They seem to be a showcase for individual athleticism and offensive prowess rather than overall basketball fundamentals and skills....kind of reminiscent of a McDonalds All-America game. I'm sure one week in the gym at BU and Mr. Tucker will fully understand the value of fundamental basketball as it's played in D1 BB.

My guess is why Roberts is on the Hilltop this week-end for a visit!

I'd expect Bradley to accept commitments from both Roberts and Barnes this weekend.

There have been reports for months that Tucker may not qualify. Some people here nearly went berserk when it was hinted at. But Geno knew this was likely and that is why he recruited and signed Swopshire, and continues to pursue other wing players. If Swopshire qualifies, Bradley will be fine. I think Swopshire is the better, and more immediately ready-to-play kid anyway.
