So Tuesday, the 5-foot-9, 203-pound Tucker became the second Garden State running back in two classes to commit to the Broncos. He called coach P.J. Fleck to inform him on the decision.
"It was good for me. I liked his reaction," Tucker said. "I told him and he was kind of running around and excited. It's exciting for me, a big relief. I was getting tired of (recruiting)."
Last year it was Union (N.J.) High running back Jamauri Bogan committing to Western Michigan.
In the 5-foot-9, 203-pound Tucker, Western Michigan gets in a downhill runner who hits the hole fast and has good top-end speed. As a junior, Tucker ran for 1,087 yards and 13 touchdowns.
"I hit the hole well and take it north and south," Tucker said. "I worked on my cuts, catching the ball more."
"I believe in changing the program, and I believe in what they're doing," Tucker said. "I like what they're doing. I went out there this weekend. It's a great place to be for four years."
