Former Hamilton HS and Stanford offensive lineman Casey Tucker signs with Arizona State

No. 2 on the day for the Devils

NCAA Football: Stanford at San Diego State Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Nine days after announcing his commitment to ASU via Instagram, Casey Tucker signed on the dotted line and became the second to do so for ASU on National Signing Day 2018.

Tucker visited Arizona State on Jan. 21, according to Mike Grose of 1580TheFanatic.com, which came nine days after ArizonaVarsity.com reported he was granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA.

The Gilbert, Arizona native, played high school football at Hamilton where he won the 2012 Division 6A State Championship. Tucker was rated a four-star by ESPN, Rivals and Scout and the No. 5 offensive tackle in the country by ESPN in the class of 2014.

The 6-6, 301-pound o-lineman started at right tackle in all 14 games of Stanford’s 2015 Rose Bowl season where he blocked for Christian McCaffrey, who at the time, posted the most single-season rushing yards in Stanford history at 2,019. Bryce Love broke it in 2017, placing second in the nation with 2,118.

Tucker played in just eight games as a junior due to injury in 2016 — two at left tackle and six at right tackle — before he sat out the 2017 season.

The one time Tucker played ASU, Stanford fell 26-10 on Oct. 19, 2014 to the then-No. 17 Sun Devils in Tempe. The next time the two programs collide: Oct. 18, 2018.

Offensive guard Sam Jones bypassed his senior season for the NFL Draft, while center A.J. McCollum graduated, leaving Steven Miller, Quinn Bailey, Cohl Cabral and Zach Robertson as the lone returners form the 2017 starting offensive line.
