“I was pretty impressed with that, I didn’t know they wanted me that bad,” said Tucker, who has a list of 10 schools for consideration -- Boston College, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
He said he and Friedgen talked about all the normal things a coach and a recruit talk about, and that he came away impressed – as seemingly every recruit does.
“We kicked back for about an hour and talked about all kinds of stuff, like bowl games and lots of other things,” he said. “It was nice. They took me all around and people showed me a lot of love.”
Tucker doesn’t expect to make a decision until late in the season or thereafter, but the foregone conclusion that he’d eventually be eliminating the Terps no longer exists.
“At first I wasn’t very high on Maryland,” he said. “But after taking my unofficial visit and [learning more], I’m really considering Maryland.”
