As a Recruit
Jalil Tucker had his commitment announcement to Oregon spoiled on live television by his father. When asked about his thoughts about his recruitment – before the announcement was made – Jonathan Tucker said: “I’m happy for him. He’s a good kid. Lazy, but he’s a good kid. And I know he’s going to represent Oregon well.” It was a lighthearted moment that will never be forgotten by the Tucker family. Tucker is a star on the football field and also on the track. In track, Tucker posted an 11.04-second 100-meter time as a junior and a 22.41-second 200 meter. He ran a 10.78 time in the 100 as a freshman in high school. He has several sub-11 second times in the 100 throughout his high school career. Tucker plans to major in music in college. His mother is Dunea Wanton.
