The question for El Paso (Texas) Chapin wide receiver Cliff Tucker is whether or not he'll be a basketball or football player at the college level. The talented young man hasn't even decided that for himself.
The 6-foot-4 185-pounder has skills and scholarship offers for both sports. Nebraska and UTEP have offered him for football. Tucker claims that the Miners have also offered him for basketball along with Pepperdine, Utah, Wichita State, Texas A&M, and Texas.
"I'm still not exactly sure which sport I'm going to play," Tucker said. "I like football more, but people say I'm a better basketball player."

Tucker says by December, he'll know which sport he's going to focus on for the college level. Staying in Texas is definitely not mandatory.
"I would like to get back to the East Coast honestly to the Maryland, Virginia area and all that," Tucker said. "That's where I'm from. I moved to Texas when I was seven."
Basketball tournaments have been mostly Tucker's focus. He's taken in a Texas basketball camp and also got a chance to tour the football facilities.
"It was nice down there, I got to see a lot of stuff at Texas," he said. "I talk to Nebraska quite a bit because I know the receiver, Will Henry, who committed there last year."
Oklahoma has also made a verbal offer for football to Tucker that took place last season.
