Monday was a big day for Butler as the team landed its highest-ranked transfer in program history in Jordan Tucker, who is leaving Duke University to join the Bulldogs. Fans know how big of a deal this is, and it showed on Twitter this afternoon.
Coming from the man himself.

Get him a class schedule, Danko!
Jordan Tucker will likely enroll immediately to be eligible at the end of the Fall 2018 semester. Probably around Crossroads Classic.

Will he be the next Kelan Martin?
The Jordan Tucker to Butler makes great sense. Nice opportunity to help fill the void of Kelan Martin
