Parish Episcopal’s Douglas Tucker is a 6-3, 280-pound three-star defensive tackle from Dallas, who is ranked 86th on SportsDays top 100 of the 2016 recruiting class.

At this time, he is undecided on what college he will attend but he holds offers from Massachusetts, New Mexico, Nevada, North Texas, UT-San Antonio, San Diego State, Tulane and Texas State. Other universities showing interest in Tucker are Arkansas, California, Houston, Baylor, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oregon State, Purdue, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas Tech and Texas.

He has an already impressive list of schools to choose from with more expected to join in the recruiting as the days go by.

Douglas is a two way player who spends his time both on the defensive and offensive lines. He has a reach advantage that he uses superbly. This allows him to keep the player in front of him from engaging him on his pads and allows him to shed players with ease.

Along with his arm strength, he uses his speed and quickness to close out on players, whether it be making the tackle or pushing back the defenders for his running back.

He hopes to repeat the success he experienced last season, where he helped lead his team to a 13-1 overall record, as well as capturing the TAPPS Division II title.

Douglas is a rare talent who excels on both sides of the ball. If he continues to play at this level, there is no reason why the offers won’t keep coming his way.
