The long anticipated visit from Jordan Tucker is finally on the books, per SNY's Adam Zagoria. Tucker will be on campus in late August.
2017 G @Therealjtucks Jordan Tucker will visit Villanova Aug. 24, his dad tells @SNYtv. Recently saw Maryland— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) July 8, 2016
Tucker is a 6'7" wing best known for his ability to shoot the ball from the outside. The Archbishop Stepinac (N.Y.) and NY RENS star has shown an improved ability to score at multiple levels and defend at a more consistent level. He fits what Villanova is looking for on the wing, but will need to continue to improve his consistency in college. The tools are there.
Tucker has been a Villanova target for quite some time, and for what feels like several months has been talking about taking a visit to campus. That hadn't materialized - and still hasn't yet - but getting Tucker on campus seems like a big step forward in Villanova's courtship with Syracuse the perceived favorite at this stage.
