Duke surprisingly lost out on top-10 recruit Kevin Knox for the 2017 recruiting cycle and quickly went after another forward in Jordan Tucker. They got him on campus quickly after Knox’s decision and ended up signing him for depth. However, it looks like he is now leaving before even finishing an entire season with the team.

The 6-foot-7, 205-pound forward played a total of 14 minutes and scored six points through 14 games into the season.

“We support Jordan and his family’s decision,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “We appreciate his commitment to Duke during his time here. Jordan represented our program well and we wish him the very best moving forward.”
