Arkansas Football Recruiting: Illinois Offers Kirk Tucker

2014 outside linebacker Kirk Tucker received an offer from the Illinois Fighting Illini on Sunday. Tucker has a 86 rating and is ranked 688th on 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings. He is also the second recruit from the state of Georgia that Tim Beckman has offered at since this weekend (the other was Cole Cook).

The Georgia native has received offers from the Arkansas Razorbacks, Louisville Cardinals, North Carolina State Wolfpack, North Carolina Tar Heels, Stanford Cardinal, Cincinnati Bearcats, UCONN Huskies, Duke Blue Devils, East Carolina Pirates, Georgia State Panthers, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Kansas State Wildcats, Ohio Bobcats, Ohio State Buckeyes, Syracuse Orange, Central Florida Knights, Vanderbilt Commodores, and Wisconsin Badgers.

Out of all his offers, it seems Tucker is most interested in Arkansas, Louisville, North Carolina State, North Carolina, and Stanford.

His best skills are his athleticism, lateral movement, reactive quickness, and pursuit of the football.

Tucker will visit the Ohio State Buckeyes for their football camp on June 21st.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 71st in the state of Georgia and 55th among outside linebackers by 247Sports.
