Transfer Portal Beckons Drake Basketball’s Tucker DeVries

Drake basketball recently suffered a loss to Washington State in the NCAA Tournament, and one of the reasons behind it was the absence of Tucker DeVries. The son of former Bulldogs coach Darian DeVries, Tucker has now entered the transfer portal, marking a significant departure from the team. Despite suffering a shoulder injury that required surgery and playing with it throughout the season, Tucker continued to contribute to the team’s success.

During his time at Drake, Tucker made a significant impact as a true freshman and excelled on the court. In his junior season, he averaged impressive statistics and helped lead Drake to several victories, including two Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships and appearances in the NCAA Tournament. His departure may signal other Bulldogs players entering the transfer portal, following the announcement that Darian DeVries will be joining West Virginia as the head basketball coach.

Darian DeVries had a successful tenure at Drake, with multiple conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances during his time with the team. However, with his son leaving and other key players potentially following suit, Darian’s move to West Virginia may have an impact on Drake’s future.
