Listed on their roster at 6'5, 210 for those who are wondering. Maybe some potential depth at the 2-3 spots? 

He will replace Dunbar. He is an elite athlete that can jump out of the gym. Has ties with Wes Flanigan.

Rayjon Tucker declares for NBA Draft, sets another visit

ByEvan Daniels
 

Rayjon Tucker, arguably the best graduate transfer on the market, declared for the NBA Draft on Monday, but he's leaving the option open to return to college, he tells 247Sports.

"I declared, but keeping my eligibility," Tucker said.

Tucker, a 6-foot-5 guard out of Charlotte, had originally announced that he would graduate from Little Rock and transfer. Tucker then took an official visit to West Virginia this past weekend.

"I loved the coaching staff and the guys on the team we really vibed well and the people of West Virginia are great," Tucker said about his visit. 

While he's actively looking into the NBA Draft, he's also scheduling more college visits. Tucker told 247Sports that he intends to visit Auburn this coming weekend.

To go with WVU and Auburn, Tucker said he's also still considering North Carolina, Memphis, South Carolina, Iowa State, Kansas and Arkansas.

Tucker averaged 2o.3 points and 6.7 rebounds this past season. He connected on 72 three-pointers and shot 41.1-percent from three on the year. Tucker played his first two collegiate seasons at Florida Gulf Coast.

If Tucker opts for college, he would be eligible to play next year.

I don’t know but I doubt Dunbar shot 41% from deep.

If he can play 3 that would severely help with losing Okeke, if that is to come. Allows you to not have to think about moving DP from the 4. I think tyrell Jones is a more than adequate Bryce replacement if that is how people are viewing this move.

 

Gives you 4 above league average shooters in Jamal Johnson-this guy-DP-McLemore and either a crafty scorer in JVon, a guy with an engine like Jared (so I’m told) in Turbo, or potentially Sharife. It’s going to be a ridiculous guard stable either way

Carolina is actually incredibly thin right now losing 5/6 of their top players. Their only returning starter will be Garrison Brooks.

Gotta think UNC is the landing spot assuming he doesn’t just go to the NBA.

If you're a Guard that can shoot, Auburn is a tough place to turn down right now. But I'd think UNC would be considered the favorite.

It'll be tough for a Charlotte kid to turn down the Tar Heels. That was likely a dream destination for him growing up unless he was a hardcore childhood Duke or NC State fan

One of the country’s most-coveted graduate transfers will be in Auburn this weekend.

Rayjon Tucker

, a wing at Arkansas-Little Rock last season, is scheduled to arrive in Auburn Friday for a two-night official visit.

“I’m definitely looking forward to it,” Tucker said. “It will be my first visit to Auburn and I can’t wait to see it. I want to get an overall feel for Auburn. I want to see what the staff is like and how the guys are, how I interact with them. I want to see what the campus life is like and I want to see the coaches and players.”

ne coach Tucker is anxious to see is assistant Wes Flanigan. The two have a prior relationship with Flanigan having recruited Tucker to Arkansas-Little Rock in 2017. 

“(Flanigan) was my first coach when I got to Little Rock, so I’m definitely excited to link back up with him and see what Auburn is about,” Tucker said. “I’m also excited to see Coach (Bruce) Pearl. I talk to him a lot, almost every day. He’s let me know that he wants me.”

Pearl and Auburn aren’t the only ones that want Tucker. Although Tucker has declared for the NBA draft, he’s kept open the possibility of returning to college. Should he choose to return, he would have one year of eligibility. Tucker only has to choose where he would use it.

Tucker already has taken an official visit to West Virginia. He’ll be in Auburn this weekend and is scheduled to take an official visit to Memphis April 25-27 and one to Iowa State May 3-5. Tucker also is considering South Carolina and Kansas.

Tucker, who started all 30 games as a junior, averaged 20.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game while shooting 41.1% from 3-point range.
