Jacob Tucker isn’t exactly a household name for what he did in his four years of college basketball. But Tucker, a DIII player from Illinois College, is quickly making a name for himself for a dunk video he posted to YouTube.
Tucker posted the video in an effort to be included in the NCAA Dunk Contest that takes place every year from the Final Four. The 5’11” guard has an astonishing 50 inch running vertical.
“Division I players have been in [the dunk contest] for the longest time, but it’s not the case that the best dunkers are always in Division I,” Tucker told the school’s website. “I think I can compete with some of those guys, so I just want the opportunity to be in it.”
Based on the dunks he pulls off in his video, Tucker would have no problem competing with the best dunkers from Division I, if he’s given the opportunity.
