Two Big Ten teams made the cut as one of the top small forwards in the country narrowed his recruitment Sunday.
Jordan Tucker, rated as the 47th-best player in the 2017 class by 247 Sports, tweeted out his top eight schools with both Indiana and Maryland included.

Tucker’s list is all big-name programs with Duke, Villanova, Syracuse, USC, Arizona and Louisville rounding out his top eight.
At 6-foot-7, Tucker is tabbed as the 10th-best small forward in his class and is a four-star recruit. Syracuse has a home state advantage with the White Plains, N.Y. native, but Tucker visited both Indiana and Maryland earlier this year.
Currently, Maryland is without any verbal commits in its 2017 class, while Indiana has one in three-star point guard Aljami Durham.
