Drake basketball player Tucker DeVries officially entered the transfer portal on Wednesday, following his announcement that he was scheduled for shoulder surgery after struggling for much of the season. Despite these challenges, DeVries was able to finish the season by playing through the pain and contributing to the team in any way he could.

During his time at Drake, Tucker DeVries made a significant impact as a true freshman. In his junior season, he averaged impressive stats, including 21.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game, along with a career-high 53 steals. He also won the prestigious Larry Bird Trophy as the conference player of the year twice.

DeVries’ departure marks the end of an era at Drake, where he played a key role in the team’s accomplishments under his father Darian DeVries. With Darian DeVries taking on a new coaching role at West Virginia, more Bulldogs players are expected to enter the transfer portal in the coming days. The program’s future remains uncertain after the coaching change.
