How He Fits
Tucker’s size and strength makes him simply dominant at the high school level as he clears everything in his path. Anytime a prospect is his size as a junior in high school there will be some struggles with overall foot speed and leverage, though Tucker certainly shows signs in his film that he can overcome those. There will be concerns about how he would stand up to speedy edge rushers at the next level, but his combination of size, strength and athleticism for his overall size make him an underrated and intriguing SEC prospect.
