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

Drake basketball player Tucker DeVries officially entered the transfer portal on Wednesday, following his announcement that he was scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery after experiencing issues for most of the season. Despite these challenges, DeVries was able to complete the season by playing through the pain and contributing to the team in any way possible.

Tucker DeVries, the son of former Bulldogs coach Darian DeVries, made a significant impact at Drake as a true freshman starter. In his junior season, he averaged impressive statistics, including 21.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game, along with 53 steals, a career-high for him. Throughout his tenure at Drake, DeVries was instrumental in the team’s success, leading them to back-to-back Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships and NCAA Tournament berths. He also earned the prestigious Larry Bird Trophy award twice as the conference player of the year.

Darian DeVries taking on a new coaching role at West Virginia is anticipated to lead more Bulldog players to enter the transfer portal in the coming days. With his departure marking the end of an era at Drake where he played a crucial role in the team’s achievements under his father’s leadership, it is uncertain what lies ahead for the future of the program following this coaching change. Alyssa Hertel, who covers college sports recruiting for Des Moines Register can provide more information on this developing story as other players contemplate their next moves.
