  • A synopsis of his game, via the Omaha World Herald: Poolman is a reliable, steady player who also brings a solid offensive game. With his size and strength, Aikens expects Poolman to play in all situations. “Coming out of the Fall Classic, Tucker is one of the hotter guys in the league as far as college attention,” Aikens said. “He gained valuable experience last year and is kind of a late bloomer. He’s only scratching the surface of what he could be eventually.”
