Tucker DeVries from Drake basketball decides to transfer to a new school

Drake Bulldog Basketball Standout Tucker DeVries Enters Transfer Portal Despite Surgery Challenges

Tucker DeVries, the son of former Drake basketball coach Darian DeVries, has officially entered the transfer portal on Wednesday. This news was reported by On3 Sports after DeVries announced that he would undergo shoulder surgery following issues he experienced throughout the season. Despite these challenges, DeVries played through the pain and made a significant impact for the team during his time at Drake.

During his junior season, DeVries averaged 21.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game while also setting a career-high with 53 steals. He was instrumental in leading Drake to back-to-back Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships and NCAA Tournament berths throughout his tenure at Drake. Additionally, he earned the prestigious Larry Bird Trophy award twice as conference player of the year.

With his father taking on a new coaching role at West Virginia University (WVU), it is expected that more Bulldog players will follow suit and enter the transfer portal in the coming days. The departure of DeVries marks an end to an era at Drake where he played a crucial role in the team’s success under his father’s leadership. As other players contemplate their next moves, the future of the program remains uncertain following the coaching change.
