Morgan Tuck Declaring for WNBA Draft

+

Morgan Tuck is in a unique situation— to be clear this is not a traditional "leaving early for the draft" story.

Tuck does have one year of eligibility remaining, having suffered an injury early in her sophomore year and receiving a medical redshirt. However, she will be graduating college and with her knee injuries her basketball playing days are numbered, so Tuck's decision is more about maximizing time at the highest level and earning potential while she can.

Tuck is likely a top-5 pick, and could possibly go as high as 3rd after her teammates Breanna Stewart and Moriah Jefferson, the consensus top two picks, which would be hell of an exclamation point after four brilliant seasons, which ended with last night's championship game.

The WNBA Draft is on April 14th at Mohegan Sun Arena, and the hometown Connecticut Sun own the No. 3 and No. 4 picks.

Best of luck to Morgan Tuck and thanks for making us proud to be Huskies!
