Drake Basketball: A Look at the Implications of Tucker DeVries’ Transfer and Darian DeVries’ Hiring

Transfer Portal Beckons Drake Basketball’s Tucker DeVries

Darian DeVries, the father of former Bulldogs basketball player Tucker DeVries, recently discussed Drake’s loss to Washington State in the NCAA Tournament. Tucker has entered the transfer portal, marking a significant departure from the team. During his time at Drake, he made a significant impact as a true freshman and continued to excel on the court. In his junior season, DeVries averaged impressive statistics and helped lead Drake to several victories, including two Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships and appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Despite an injury that required surgery, DeVries played through it and contributed significantly to Drake’s success. His departure may signal other Bulldogs players entering the transfer portal following Darian DeVries’ announcement that he will be joining West Virginia as head basketball coach. The future of Drake basketball will certainly be impacted by these changes as the program looks to move forward without some key players and coaching staff.
