Boston College linebacker Ethan Tucky has been granted his release and will be transferring from BC according to a report from Justin Rowland of Rivals and confirmed by a source at Boston College.
Transferring Boston College linebacker Ethan Tucky visiting UK soon, will also speak with Patrick Towles https://t.co/yK00an970L— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) May 12, 2017
Tucky, a very high 3*, was one of the highest rated recruits BC, landed in the Class of 2016, choosing BC over UK, Iowa, Indiana, Cincinnati, Northwestern and Wisconsin. Interesting tweet above, according to my source it appears that Tucky wanted to play closer to home in Ohio. As mentioned above he is already planning a visit to Kentucky, who offered him in the first go round. Another school worth watching is Cincinnati. Al Washington accepted a job with the Bearcats this winter, and he was Tucky’s primary recruiter when he came to BC. Could they reunite at a school much closer to his home?
Ethan Tucky came to Boston College early in 2016, and practiced with the team during the spring. He was redshirted his freshman year, and did not see any action. It did not appear that he would be starting this fall, as BC already had Ty Schwab, Connor Strachan and Kevin Bletzer/Sharrieff Grice set to fill in that last slot.
Transfers happen, sometimes schools, coaches or locations are just not the right fit. Best of luck to Ethan in the future.
