Arkansas-Little Rock guard Rayjon Tucker averaged 20.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game for the Trojans this past season and will play his final year of college basketball somewhere else. Not surprisingly, Tucker has plenty of high-major programs interested in bringing him into the fold, including Gonzaga, Michigan, Tennessee, Arizona, and NC State.

Tucker, who is from Charlotte, began his college career at Florida Gulf Coast, where he spent two seasons. At Little Rock, his role at the offensive end expanded significantly and logged a lot of minutes as a starter, but the team stunk and clearly he doesn’t want to spend another year on a team that’s going nowhere.

His skills should translate fine to the major-conference level, and he is a career 41.7% three-point shooter. This season he also knocked down 56.1% of his twos—no wonder he’s a popular guy on the transfer market.

He’ll be an impact addition for whichever school manages to land him.
