Jalil Tucker was preparing for his big day, ready to appear on national television for his recruitment announcement.
The four-star athlete made his college decision live on the Prep Pigskin Report when he ultimately revealed he has committed to Mario Cristobal’s Oregon Ducks.
Unfortunately, his decision was prematurely spoiled by his father in a hilarious moment.
“I’m happy for him. He’s a good kid. Lazy, but he’s a good kid. And I know he’s going to represent Oregon well,” Tucker’s father said before realizing what he had just done. Everyone eventually erupted into laughter before Tucker made his final decision.
Sure, Tucker may have preferred to make the announcement himself, but in the end, he got a much better, more memorable moment that he and his pops can laugh about for a long time.
