Casey Tucker has established himself as one of the top prospects in Arizona's 2014 recruiting class and he performed well this past weekend at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Atlanta.
The 6-foot-6, 275-pound prospect has already landed offers from Oregon State, Arizona State, Washington, Michigan, Notre Dame, Nebraska and Boise State and he said others are showing interest as well.
A lot of Pac-12 schools have gotten involved and Tucker said he's also hearing from Oklahoma so he's excited about where his recruitment is headed.
"I have a good number of schools that are talking to me and that are interested in me but they haven't officially offered yet," Tucker said.
"I'm not thinking about the recruiting process too much right now but over time in the next year and my senior year I'll definitely make my decision then. Right now I'm looking at personal goals and having a good junior season of high school."
Tucker, from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton, said it was an outstanding experience to compete in the Rivals Challenge basically because he's a year behind most of the participants and learned a lot throughout the weekend.
As one of Arizona's top players, Tucker could become an even bigger national name as his recruitment continues.
"It's huge," Tucker said. "I'm just going against these older guys and learning from these older guys and getting a chance to be there with all of them is just a huge advantage for me. I get to be a year ahead of everybody."
