One of the top available offensive linemen in the country made his college decision Thursday as four-star offensive tackle Casey Tucker committed to Stanford.
Listed at 6'6 and 270 pounds, Tucker attends Hamilton (Ariz.) High School and hails from Chandler, Ariz. Tucker is rated highest by Scout, which considers him a five-star prospect and the third-best offensive tackle in the country. Each of the other three major recruiting services (Rivals, 247sports and ESPN) rates Tucker as a four-star prospect.
The 247sports composite, which aggregates the ratings from all four major recruiting services, rates Tucker as a four-star prospect. The composite ranks Tucker as the 82nd-best prospect in the nation, considering him the seventh-best offensive tackle in the country and the second-best player in the state of Arizona.
Tucker becomes the seventh consensus four-star commitment in Stanford's Class of 2014. His commitment pushes Stanford to 16th in the 247 Sports standings and the top spot among Pac-12 schools. Tucker is the second offensive tackle taken by the Cardinal, joining fellow Arizona-based prospect A.T. Hall.
