Ethan Tucky transferring

Attrition and transfers are always expected, but I am surprised by the Ethan Tucky news. The Ohio LB has been granted his release by BC and is looking to transfer closer to home. 

Tucky is yet another reminder that predicting who will blossom at BC and who won't is a bit of a crap shoot. He was a highly regarded recruit. He seemed to pick BC for the right reasons. Tucky also had a previous relationship with Jim Reid, making the coordinator change an non issue. Even the early press Tucky received when he got on campus indicated that big things were ahead. Since he redshirted, he will leave BC without ever touching the field. 

I think BC has enough playmakers on Defense, that this won't be an issue. Best of luck to him at his next stop.

Well this was unexpected. Thought he was the heir apparent to Strachan next year. Hmm.

This raises all kinds of questions. Wonder what happened.

WHY?

BC tends to recruit good linebackers anyways so he'll be easily replaceable. He was an overrated recruit anyways, who started off a 4* but then was reduced to 3*. His absence won't be noticed.

I agree, Mod. Tired of disloyal jocks. Get lost, Merc. Don't let the door hit you in the ass. Go to a football factory like Kentucky or Louisville and major in jock sniffing.

I'm not sure that UK is a football factory GE but point taken.

Georgia Eagle said...

It's a basketball factory and a football wanna-be. They just can't compete.

He quit? No, he transferred to another school precisely because he is not a quitter.

Someone who wants to play is not a quitter.

Trashing someone on the way out is classless. Just sore that he left or more likely you just need something to peg your hyper negativity to.

Hopefully BC was a decent experience for him.

Very good post - Knucklehead !!! To disparage a young man that has decided to transfer is indeed not what one should expect from a BC fan.
