"It's my first BCS offer so it was a pretty big day," he said. "Coach Washington and my new head coach Mike Golden coached him when he went to Bishop Watterson and he was up at Upper Arlington where he still teaches and he asked about me and that's when Coach Golden told me they offered me."
Tucky has not been to the school but hopes to take a visit once his schedule clears up.
"Yeah, maybe a weekend coming up but I have a busy June coming up with camps and if I'm open in June or maybe even late May, I'll be up there. It's a big school, so getting up there is a top priority so I can see it and my family can see it."
Those June camps will hopefully give Tucky an opportunity to earn more offers and catch the eye of additional programs.
"I know I'm camping at Michigan State, Ohio State, Illinois and Wisconsin then visiting Northwestern, I don't know if that's for camp yet but I'm definitely at least visiting there and Notre Dame too."
A hybrid pass rusher who had his had in the ground last year, Tucky's frame, skill set, track speed and general athleticism have many believing he can stand up in college and he is ready to make that belief a fact.
"I'll do outside linebacker at camp. Everything I do is based on the outside linebacker position. Not being big enough for a D1 end, I've done all my training at outside linebacker and coaches see me as a linebacker."
