Minnetonka Guard heads to Iowa

Anthony Tucker, a 6-4 combo guard from Minnetonka, has signed on to attend the University of Iowa.

Tucker averaged 17 points per game this season, and is a three star prospect according to, ranked as the 28th best PG in the class of 2008.

I read over at that when Tucker recently visited the University of Minnesota campus, he was told by Tubby that he wouldn't be offered a scholarship. I'm guessing that a scholarship at Iowa looks pretty good compared to trying to walk-on.

I trust Tubby's judgement, and looking at the others schools that offered him besides Iowa (Utah State, Western Michigan, and UW-Green Bay) it looks like he may be a mid-major type player that Iowa made a mistake on. Or maybe everyone is stupid except new Iowa coach Todd Lickliter.
