MEQUON, Wis. – Talen Horton-Tucker is not a top 50 recruit in the class of 2018. At the moment, he’s not even top 100.
Here’s what he is: a winner, a tough-nosed kid who can rebound, pass, shoot and defend. He’s also a player you want on your side.
On the opening night of the 2017 spring AAU season at NY2LA Swish ‘N Dish, Horton-Tucker showed his full arsenal against a Ramey Jets team led by top 30 recruit Courtney Ramey (committed to Louisville) and top 100 player Torrence Watson. A very small sample size to be sure, but on this night the 6-foot-5, 200-pound Horton-Tucker was the best player on the court.
