West Virginia Basketball has officially signed Drake transfer guard Tucker DeVries, as announced by the program on Monday afternoon. Tucker is the son of WVU HC Darian DeVries, as his father announced his commitment during his introductory press conference on Thursday.

“Obviously, we’re excited to have Tucker join our program. He has a tremendous skill set and his experience will be invaluable to us. We are grateful that he has chosen to play for us for his senior season,” DeVries said.

DeVries (6-foot-7) averaged 21.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists for the Bulldogs this past season. DeVries shot 44% from the field, 36% from three and 81% from the free throw line. DeVries is the reigning back-to-back Missouri Valley Player of the Year and is highly ranked amongst the 1,000 transfers to enter the portal thus far.

DeVries has one year of eligibility remaining and decided to join his dad at West Virginia.

“[My dad] certainly felt like this is a place he can be successful and excited to be a part of. And we were all in full support of that. For me to be able to come here my senior year, I’m really looking forward to it,” Tucker said.
