Recruiting is moving fast for Casey Tucker but the 2014 offensive tackle from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton wants to take things slowly so he can get a better grasp on which programs are serious about him.
Arizona State, Oregon State and Washington have offered the 6-foot-6, 275-pound prospect and he said Oklahoma, Stanford and Michigan have all reached out in recent weeks.
But Tucker wants to put the brakes on, take his time and not rush anything as things get busier almost every day.

"It sounds like I'm getting my name out there more," Tucker said. "I'm just taking it slow."
Tucker, who has numerous teammates in the 2013 and 2014 classes who are being heavily recruited, said he's been to Arizona State a bunch of times and likes the program a lot.
The Sun Devils' coaching staff continues to encourage him to visit as often as possibled and Tucker appreciates their approach.
"I've been to ASU about three times and they want me to come back out but I'm just taking it easy," Tucker said.
"I want to take it slow. I liked it out there a lot but I don't want to get glued to one school right now."
The new interest is also appealing. Since it's still so early in Tucker's recruitment, the Chandler Hamilton standout said he's going to do more research on all the programs involved and keep trying to get others interested.
"It's really exciting," Tucker said. "They're all good programs. I like Oklahoma's style and their program. I like Stanford because a degree from there is really good and they've been playing good football. It's going well right now."
