IU basketball recruiting: Hoosiers offer 2024 wing Bryson Tucker

Indiana has offered a scholarship to Maryland-based class of 2024 wing Bryson Tucker.

Tucker announced the offer after talking to IU head coach Mike Woodson and assistant coach Kenya Hunter on Tuesday.

“After a great conversation with Coach Woodson and Coach Hunter I am honored to have received an offer from Indiana University,” Tucker wrote in an Instagram post.

Originally from Bowie, Md., the 6-foot-6 Tucker averaged 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists in his freshman season at Mt. Saint Joseph’s in Baltimore. He was a second-team All-Baltimore Catholic League selection.

“He is a sizey and long wing at this stage who can really score the basketball,” 247Sports national analyst Travis Branham wrote this summer.  “Tucker has an advanced scoring package for a prospect his age, especially from the mid-range.

“He has an array of one- and two- dribble pull-ups, step-backs and even turnaround fade-aways out of the mid-post. Tucker is a skilled scorer who can make tough shots and comes with pedigree as his father played at NC State and overseas.”

Tucker played for USA Basketball’s under-16 national team over the summer.  He was on the same team as IU 2023 target Jeremy Fears, Jr.  Tucker averaged 9.5 points and 4.3 rebounds to help the USA to a 6-0 record and gold at the 2021 FIBA Americas U16 Championship in Xalpala, Mexico.

IU joins an already competitive recruitment.  Tucker has been offered by Maryland, Illinois, Georgetown, Penn State, Virginia Tech, George Mason, LSU and Notre Dame.
