Ex-Husky Tucker Signs NBA D-League Deal
Cliff Tucker may be one of the all-time best athletes to ever come out of El Paso. After earning all-state in both football and basketball, Tucker played four years at powerhouse Maryland. At the end of his basketball eligibility, Cliff used his final year of athletic eligibility to play football for UTEP. That year away from basketball motivated Tucker to follow his dream of reaching the NBA. That goal will get a little closer Friday when Cliff will be drafted in the NBA Developmental League.
