Tucker, which has won seven straight games since consecutive losses in December, moved ahead of South Cobb (19-2, 12-1) in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Class AAAAAA rankings and stands 19-2. South Cobb, also 19-2, held the No. 1 spot for one week but lost a Region 6 game Tuesday to No. 5 Sequoyah (17-4, 10-2).
Tucker is led by Jermontae Hill, an all-state player from the 2019 team that lost to Tri-Cities 46-43 in the championship game. He’s now joined by another 6-foot-6 senior, Terrence Edwards Jr., who spent a season at a North Carolina prep school last season. Both have Division I offers.
