Oregon State basketball has added another recruit for the upcoming 2019-20 season. Dearon Tucker is a 6-foot-10 power forward from Irving, Texas. He announced his commitment to the Beavers on Twitter Friday afternoon.
Dearon Tucker is a 3-star recruit according to 247 sports. He was also offered by Baylor, Depaul, Wake Forest, Penn State and Coastal Carolina. Just over a week ago Tucker released his top four schools on Twitter.

Tucker should fit seamlessly into Oregon State’s frontcourt which is looking for reliable playmakers in the post. Dearon Tucker is an intriguing forward and could help fill the void after Warren Washington’s transfer. Tucker isn’t as long as Washington, but he is a physical big that will be able to rebound on both ends of the court. It’s a big pickup for Oregon State and Tucker should help them this upcoming season.
