Drake Basketball Faces Uncertainty as Darian DeVries Leaves for West Virginia

Transfer Portal Beckons Drake Basketball’s Tucker DeVries

Recently, Darian DeVries, the father of former Bulldogs basketball player Tucker DeVries, discussed Drake’s loss to Washington State in the NCAA Tournament. Tucker has entered the transfer portal and is expected to join his father at West Virginia, although this move has not yet been confirmed. Despite dealing with a shoulder injury throughout the season and requiring surgery, Tucker continued to play and contribute to Drake’s success.

During his time at Drake, Tucker made a significant impact as a true freshman and excelled on the court. In his junior season, he averaged impressive statistics and helped lead Drake to several victories, including two Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships and appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Darian DeVries had a successful tenure at Drake, with multiple conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances during his time with the team.

DeVries’ departure may signal other Bulldogs players entering the transfer portal, following the announcement that Darian DeVries will be joining West Virginia as the head basketball coach. The future of Drake basketball will certainly be impacted by these changes, as the program looks to move forward without some key players and coaching staff.
