Jordan Tucker, a 2017 four-star prospect, said in a tweet Monday afternoon that he will have an official visit to Duke on Wednesday.
Tucker’s announcement comes less than 48 hours, after the No. 8 recruit in the country, Kevin Knox II, bypassed Duke, UNC and others for Kentucky.
Tucker, a 6-7, 200-pound small forward, played his senior year of high school basketball for Wheeler High School in Marietta, Ga. He is ranked No. 77 by 247sports.com. Tucker tweeted Sunday that he had received an offer from Duke.
Another ACC school Tucker is considering is Georgia Tech.
