Virginia Tech made the top 5 for Tucker alongside Auburn, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and LSU. All of those schools except LSU were among four standing out for Tucker when we recently caught up with him recently before today’s announcement.
Why did the Hokies make the top 5 for Tucker?
“It’s a mind-blowing school. I mean, education and football; it just fits perfectly,” Tucker told us.
The Hokies have been among the schools recruiting him the hardest though it’s quite clear that the interest is significant on both sides.
Tucker was on campus for Virginia Tech’s Spring Game and previously told us that he hopes to take a visit to Virginia Tech in the near future along with the other schools that were standing out to him previously. While LSU wasn’t a part of that group, it seems likely that Tucker will also try to visit the Tigers sometime soon as well.
Since offering Bryn Tucker on a Junior Day visit, the Hokies have made Tucker a priority and have quickly become a top contender for his commitment.
